Weird things

[ #11634 ]

We just installed a new Perl driven website on the customer's web host. The host really sucks. On average they need a week to do anything. Registering a new domain, installing a module - 7 working days is minimum. They use Debian and only install modules via the debian installer. Unfortunately, they only get Template Toolkit 2.06 via Debian. Now, they finally agreed to install TT by hand.... and what happened:

perl -MCGI

doesnt find CGI.pm

perl -Mstrict

or

perl -Mlib

work perfectly. Apparently perl doesn't like uppercase names anymore :(

Guess their answer:

"Well, you might want to redo it in PHP. It's much more powerful, it even does templates out of the box."

    Ask them to install the dh-make-perl [debian.org] package. It downloads latest versions of modules from CPAN and creates debian packages (.deb) and optionally installs them for you.
