Installing Date::Calc 5.4 on RHEL 5.1Edit

Created , updated

These notes were made while installing Date::Calc 5.4 on RHEL 5.1. It has a fairly complex dependency hierarchy:

  • Date::Calc
    • Bit::Vector
      • Carp::Clan
        • Test::Exception
          • Sub::Uplevel
          • Test::Simple
          • Test::More (installed with Test::Simple)
          • Test::Builder (installed with Test::Simple)
          • Test::Builder::Tester (installed with Test::Simple)

So these have to be installed in reverse order.

Test::Simple

wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/M/MS/MSCHWERN/Test-Simple-0.78.tar.gz
tar xzvf Test-Simple-0.78.tar.gz 
cd Test-Simple-0.78
perl Makefile.PL 
make
make test
sudo make install

Sub::Uplevel

wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/D/DA/DAGOLDEN/Sub-Uplevel-0.1901.tar.gz
tar xzvf Sub-Uplevel-0.1901.tar.gz 
cd Sub-Uplevel-0.1901
perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
sudo make install

Test::Exception

wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/A/AD/ADIE/Test-Exception-0.27.tar.gz
tar xzvf Test-Exception-0.27.tar.gz 
cd Test-Exception-0.27
less README 
perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
sudo make install

Carp::Clan

wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/J/JJ/JJORE/Carp-Clan-6.00.tar.gz
tar xzvf Carp-Clan-6.00.tar.gz

sudo make install

Bit::Vector

wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/S/ST/STBEY/Bit-Vector-6.4.tar.gz
tar xzvf Bit-Vector-6.4.tar.gz 
cd Bit-Vector-6.4
perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
sudo make install

Date::Calc itself

wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/S/ST/STBEY/Date-Calc-5.4.tar.gz
tar xzvf Date-Calc-5.4.tar.gz 
cd Date-Calc-5.4
