I have perl version 5.8.2 installed on my AIX at /usr/opt/perl5. I want to upgrade 5.8.2 to version 5.8.8.

There are lot of database perl modules installed on version 5.8.2. So how do I upgrade my old version 5.8.2 to new verions 5.8.8

Hi,

First of all perl depends on a gcc compiler. I don't know if you ahve IBM C compiler. If oyou don2T then your perl must be already compiled with gcc. In this case go to here. Grab the perl rpm and install.

http://www.perzl.org/aix/index.php?n=Main.Perl

do the upgrade through rpm.

Then just launch perl and do a CPAN bundle upgrade:

perl -MCPAN -e shell
.
.
cpan> install Bundle::CPAN


This should be it.

Cheers,
K.
