Dear Apple

[ #38503 ]

A big thank you for fucking up perl in Thursdays update. This is definitely how I wanted to spend my Tuesday night.

IO is toast. Now that that is reinstalled, looks like Time::HiRes is next.

Time::HiRes object version 1.86 does not match $Time::HiRes::XS_VERSION 1.9719

Can't wait to see how far this rabbit hole goes.

  • Weak references are not implemented in the version of perl

  • The problem appears to be that Apple included the Perl parts of those modules (the bootstrapper), and left the binary parts (AKA "DLL" in Windows speak) out.

    You either do neither, or both. But not one and not the other.

  • You know, it's REALLY past time someone made a Strawberry Perl for Mac, a single self-contained package with pre-configured built in GCC and so on.

    It's not even THAT hard, just takes some work.

    And once you have the Perl::Dist equivalent written, you can rebuild and update it in only 10 or 20 hours or so once a quarter.
