I used local::lib this week. Wow, it really is a nice way to install cpan modules into my source control tree, to build an app-specific perl5 lib.

local::lib, why have you forsaken me?

Where is Sub/ hiding? I see Sub/ ...

This is not the time for me to be poking with this...


perl -MSub::Name -e 1;

Update: FIXED!

local::lib, sorry to have made you take a timeout, but you should pick your friends better.

subversion, you're the troublemaker here. svn add and svn stat were using a default global ignore that includes a *.so glob, this not picking up the .so files and adding them to the repo.

I rebuilt the binaries (reinstalled the modules) via:
eval `perl -Mlocal::lib=/home/prodicon/perl5`
cpan -f install Sub::Name

cpan -r should have worked, not quite sure what was wrong there, but it through this error:

Undefined subroutine &main::_recompile called at /usr/bin/cpan line 278.

the --no-ignore flag to subversion will skip the global ignore list.

svn add perl5 --no-ignore
svn stat thisdir --no-ignore
