Subject: Missing Validate.pm
Date: Wed, 31 Oct 2018 16:49:13 +0600
To: bug-params-validate@rt.cpan.org
From: Tamanna Afroze <t.afroze12@gmail.com>
Hello,
I have installed the Params::Validation module using CPAN. The installation does not contain Validation.pm file. Now my software circos is not running. It is reporting an error message saying:

missing Params::Validate
  error Params/Validate.pm did not return a true value at (eval 45) line 1.

What to do? How to fix this error? Any help needed.

With many thanks,
Tamanna.
Hi Tamanna, I'm not sure what happened, but this isn't the best forum for this. I'd suggest one of the following: * The #perl-help channel on irc.perl.org * The perl subreddit at https://www.reddit.com/r/perl/ * Stack Overflow You should start by sharing exactly what steps you took to install the distribution. Without knowing that it won't be possible to help you figure out how to install it correctly. I would suggest installing the cpanminus tool with this command: curl -L https://cpanmin.us | perl - App::cpanminus See https://cpanmin.us/ for more details. Once that's installed you can install this package by running "cpanm Params::Validate".

Thank you for your help! I have cpanm already installed. Also I tried to install the module Params::Validate using cpanm. It is saying Validate module is up-to-Date.  But it is missing the Validate.pm file for why my software is reporting about missing issue.

Anyway Thanks for your help. I will try to find a solution.

Sincerely,
Tamanna.

Hello,
Sorry I did not mention the steps I followed. My software name is Circos. It needs several perl module to be installed to run. The software Circos contain a perl script which is the main file to execute. When I executed that perl script it showed what models I need to install. I issued the following command for example:

sudo cpan install Math::Beizer

This software needs following packages :

Carp
Clone
Config::General
Cwd
Data::Dumper
Digest::MD5
File::Basename
File::Spec::Functions
File::Temp
FindBin
Font::TTF::Font
GD
GD::Image
Getopt::Long
IO::File
List::MoreUtils
List::Util
Math::Round
Math::Trig
Math::VecStat
Memoize
Params::Validate
Pod::Usage
POSIX
Readonly
Regexp::Common
Statistics::Basic
Storable
Sys::Hostname
Text::Balanced
Text::Format
Time::HiRes

I installed all and then run ./circos
But its reporting following error:

*** REQUIRED MODULE(S) MISSING OR OUT-OF-DATE ***

You are missing one or more Perl modules, require newer versions, or some modules failed to load. Use CPAN to install it as described in this tutorial

http://www.circos.ca/documentation/tutorials/configuration/perl_and_modules

missing Params::Validate
  error Params/Validate.pm did not return a true value at (eval 45) line 1.

I do not know how to fix this.

Thank You:
Tamanna.
