I tried to install 5.8.1... --------------------- $ perlbrew install perl-5.8.1 Attempting to load conf from /Users/schwern/perl5/perlbrew/ Fetching perl-5.8.1 as /Users/schwern/perl5/perlbrew/dists/perl-5.8.1.tar.gz Installing perl-5.8.1 into /Users/schwern/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.8.1 This could take a while. You can run the following command on another shell to track the status: tail -f /Users/schwern/perl5/perlbrew/build.log (cd /Users/schwern/perl5/perlbrew/build; tar xzf /Users/schwern/perl5/perlbrew/dists/perl-5.8.1.tar.gz;cd /Users/schwern/perl5/perlbrew/build/perl-5.8.1;rm -f;sh Configure -de -Dprefix=/Users/schwern/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.8.1;/usr/local/perl/5.10.1/bin/perl -i -nle 'print unless /command-line/' makefile x2p/makefile;make;make test && make install) >> '/Users/schwern/perl5/perlbrew/build.log' 2>&1 Installing perl-5.8.1 failed. See /Users/schwern/perl5/perlbrew/build.log to see why. If you want to force install the distribution, try: perlbrew --force install perl --------------- Some investigating revealed that /Users/schwern/perl5/perlbrew/dists/perl-5.8.1.tar.gz was not a tarball but an HTML file informing me that the file had been moved (sorry, I don't have the file but I recall it was from ibiblio). It would be nice if perlbrew could verify that the tarball is a tarball before proceeding and give the user a nice error otherwise. Thanks.
