I have never used mod_perl. Therefore, I am not able to offer much assistance. I would have a look at the mod_perl website online. If that does not work and other assistance is not offered here, then I would suggest posting your question on perlmonks.org

I am trying to use a Perl script which requires a Database module other than "dbm" to be the default Mod. So, what the script is checking is import anydbm if (anydbm._defaultmod.__name__ == 'dumbdbm' or anydbm._defaultmod.__name__ == 'dbm'): First of, I'm doing this on a Sparc/Solaris 8 box. So, I'm trying to get gdbm to be the default mod. I've downloaded and

I am having a little trouble getting DB_File 1.808 to work with BerkleyDB4.2.52 and perl 5.8.0 when building in 64 bit mode on Solaris 5.8. When running the make test it fails with the message "Tie failed: Not enough space". It is not at all clear to me if this will resolve to a perl, BerkleyDB or DB_File problem.

Before I go deep into this - does anyone have the quick fix for this ? Some facts - the 7.3.4 version of plperl.c has the same errors in the 7.4 tree. The 7.4 version of plperl.c (with some error handling API calls commented out) compiles fine in the 7.3.4 tree. (Same machine - same install of perl !) Points to using some alternate perl API probably by macro collision ?

I have seen some previous posts regarding problems building Perl on AIX with gcc. Unfortunately, none of the posts produced any answers to the problem. I am also having similar problems, and I hope there are answers for them. I am able to run Configure, and do the 'make' successfully, but doing 'make test' produces numerous failures, like: # Can't load '../lib/auto/File/Glob/Glob.so' for module File::Glob: dlopen: ../l...

Basically, I want to create a table in html, xml, or xslt; with any number of regular expressions; a script (Perl or Python) which reads each table row (regex and replacement); and performs the replacement on any file name, folder, or text file (e.g. css, php, html).
