#1: getopt long

Posted on 2008-04-13 15:50:38 by Michael Ellery

I've been under the impression that Getopt::Long is included with most
(if not all) distributions of perl. Recently I've encountered a few
Activestate versions that don't seem to have it installed. What the
current policy with this package - is it included? As of which version
did it become standard?

Thanks,
Mike Ellery

...and it gets worse. For those versions that seem to have Getopt::Long
but that don't have the minimum version I require (2.36), I've tried
installing the latest (using ppm), but at runtime perl always loads the
"builtin" version and not my upgraded version in site/lib. Any ideas
how I can fix this?

Thanks,
Mike Ellery

I have version 2.37 in my site/lib (not sure if that's usable or not).

Try posting the output of this script:

use strict;
use warnings;
use Getopt::Long;

print "$_\n" foreach @INC; print "\n";

print "$_ => $INC{$_}\n" foreach keys %INC;

__END__

OUTPUT from a 5.8.7 installation:

C:\Documents and Settings\testuser.S2TECH>perl
//s2server1/infrastructure/libpath.pl
C:/Perl/lib
C:/Perl/site/lib
..

warnings/register.pm => C:/Perl/lib/warnings/register.pm
Carp.pm => C:/Perl/lib/Carp.pm
warnings.pm => C:/Perl/lib/warnings.pm
Exporter/Heavy.pm => C:/Perl/lib/Exporter/Heavy.pm
vars.pm => C:/Perl/lib/vars.pm
Exporter.pm => C:/Perl/lib/Exporter.pm
strict.pm => C:/Perl/lib/strict.pm
constant.pm => C:/Perl/lib/constant.pm
Getopt/Long.pm => C:/Perl/lib/Getopt/Long.pm

My local 5.8.8 installation works fine because it appears to have 2.37
"built-in", so I never had to install or upgrade. Older distributions
seem to have either not Getopt::Long or an antiquated version (I'm
relying on a function in 2.36+).

Thanks,
Mike

That's not right - site/lib should come before lib to pick up
the later modules first from the site tree. perl -V should
also show @INC reversed from what you have there. If you
can't find anything obvious - consider reinstalling it.

It probably has site/lib first like it should be.
