Subject: Problems "uninstalling" Sybperl 2.09
Date: Jan 7 1998 2:55PM
I recently downloaded perl 5.004.04 and sybperl 2.09. Currently we're
running perl 5.003 and sybperl 2.05. After compiling both statically,
during testing I ran into repeatable runtime problems with a
particular Sybperl application we have. I'm not sure what the problem
is exactly, and I'm more suspicious of perl than sybperl (anyone run
into socket or signal problems with 5.004?), so in any event, I felt
it prudent to reduce the number a variables in the equation while
testing and decided to roll back to Sybperl 2.05.
To do this I went to my Sybperl 2.05 source directory, ran "perl
Makefile.PL" using the 5.004 perl binary, and went through the entire
make process, finishing with the commands "make install" and then
"make -f Makefile.aperl inst_perl MAP_TARGET=perl". I then verified
that the perl binary that was created in my 2.05 directory was indeed
copied into the perl 5.004 bin directory.
However, when I run the simple program
./perl -e 'use Sybase::DBlib; print "$SybperlVer\n"'
from either the perl 5.004 bin directory or the Sybperl 2.05 directory
it displays "2.09".
What gives? Have I missed a step somewhere? Shouldn't this variable
now show 2.05?
Thanks in advance for your help.
