OpenSUSE :: Difference Between Perl And Perl-devel?

Jun 28, 2010

I'm new in perl programming and linux OS. What is the difference between perl and perl-devel? What does mean devel? Iwant to install Catalyst and before install as required I have to check if make, gcc and perl-devel are installed in my system. make and gcc are installed. But I have to install perl-devel. First I searched for make, gcc and perl-devel in YAST Software Management and search did not find perl-devel. I visited the and wrote "perl-devel" and searched. The result was many similar zips with a prefix perl-devel and I can not choose one for needed perl-devel.

Ubuntu :: Switch Back To /usr/bin/perl After Installing Second Perl?

Aug 14, 2010

I recently reinstalled the B module for perl. Now I found out it didn't just do that, it installed a whole new copy of perl into /usr/local/bin/perl. When I type 'which perl' at the terminal, it says '/usr/local/bin/perl' instead of '/usr/bin/perl'. Normally, this wouldn't bother me. But I installed the one in local/bin without threading support. The one that comes with the system already is build with threading support, which is why I want to switch back to the system perl, and possibly remove the one in /usr/local/bin.

So how do I change it so that the result of 'which perl' returns as '/usr/bin/perl'? And what do I have to do to remove /usr/local/bin/perl?

The reason I need threading support is because I'm designing a file copier that copies several chunks of a file simultaneously to speed up the copying process. Guaranteed a useful script if it works.

General :: Use "#!/usr/bin/perl" In The Beginning Of A Perl Script

Dec 17, 2010

I have a small problem with Perl and Apache.

If I use "#!/usr/bin/perl" in the beginning of a perl script the script won't work if the script is at all complicated. Simple scripts like "Hello World" works.

But if I use "#!/usr/bin/perl -w" in the beginning all scripts work?

If I don't use the -w this is whats in the logs:

(2)No such file or directory: exec of '/home/' failed

Premature end of script headers:

When I use the -w in the script the error-log shows me this. Name "main::http_path_cgi" used only once: possible typo at /home/ line 24.

Fedora :: Difference Between A Package And Its -devel Equivalent?

Mar 19, 2010

Am just wondering what the notion is behind having a package without all needed files, and having a -devel package with the rest. Such that whenever am installing a package fron tarball, and it says it cannot get a package, I always install the -devel equivalent and all gets to be OK. Why dont they just have everything in the original package?

Programming :: MP3 - Tag And Perl Script

Mar 27, 2011

I am a newbie on linux and just searching everything about perl scripting and modules nearly 3-4 days. I need a perl script but one of not easy to find on searching google. Okay now I need a perl script which create or recreate (edit) id3 tags (artist, comment, album, year, cover) of mp3 files stored on my linux centos server. I installed MP3::Tag version 1.13 pearl module to my server. I Searched tutorials about how to use it, finally I get through reading id3 tag of mp3 file but not achieve to modify it or create a new id3tag.

These are the details:
I have a mp3 file called 1.mp3 this script will process that '1.mp3' file read its id3tag if there is one, than modify or create id3tag for it by my fix artist name for example:
'1.mp3' files id3 tag details are like this
Artist: Dj xx
Cover: x.jpg

Now via this perl script which uses MP3::TAG I will change it's
artist as YYY
these are gonna be my fixed values. I mean all '1.mp3' file will have same artist based on script value.

The reason of this script is I will share Dj podcasts on my server and Dj's would have upload their mp3's which has got different id3 tags and cover pics. etc. I want to create more organized podcasts of them by the way I would trigger this perl script via Cronjob.

Fedora Installation :: 14 - Perl Not Installed?

Nov 15, 2010

I have a CD with the Fedora 14 ISO burned. It doesn't appear to have perl installed on it. (Open a terminal, type "perl" and press Enter, and get the "Command not found." response.)Further, once I install to the hard drive and boot from it, run the updates and let them complete, and reboot, I still don't seem to have perl and I can't find a package for fc14 that would install perl.I must be the only one having this problem because I don't see any references to this and somebody would have noticed by now, but is there anyone who can tell me what I might have done wrong?

General :: Get The Path To The Perl Script?

May 1, 2011

I had a problem recently, where a perl script was consuming server resources. I found out it was a perl script by using "top". But it didn't give the path to the script. Nor did ps.Also, ps -ef showed that the process with that pid is /usr/bin/httpd (apache), so it must have been apache serving some perl page I suppose.Is it possible to get the path to currently running perl script, if I only know the process PID of the perl process that is running that script? If so, how? I don't need the path to the perl binary, I need the path to the perl script that binary is currently executing.
