  • The iBook I tested had perl 5.8.3 (IIRC) but installing perl modules seemed a bit uhm hard. For the brief moment I had it, the user management on iBook seemed to prevent me from installing stuff. It complained about an administrator user?!? It was a default set-up tho.
    • First I had to install wget (there was no wget) in order to get the modules with CPAN;

      than I discovered I wasn't able to install modules that required compilation;

      than I discovered I wasn't able to install *anything* that required compilation;

      than I discovered there was probably a problem with gcc because I couldn't even compile a simple C Hello World...

      and that's where I am right now :-| I've already downloaded gcc but hadn't got the time yet to try and install it, because I'm still receiving training on Bricolage (hurray!)

      I'm not sure what to think of this (the Perl issue) yet :-|

      And no, there is absolutely no f*ck*ng possible way I'll drop Perl to start coding in something else :-)
