Perl 5.24 incorrectly packaged

  • 1.  Perl 5.24 incorrectly packaged

    Posted 04-06-2017 07:27

    I took a look at the perl 5.24 installation which is

    Tool: perl
    Version: 5.24.0
    Build Number: 002

    and found that its directory structure has some oddities.

    There are duplicate directories
    lib/perl5/5.24.0/os390/
    lib/perl5/5.24.0/5.24.0/os390/

    Most of the files are duplicates but not all as arithmetic shows:

    $ find lib/perl5/5.24.0/5.24.0/ -type f | wc -l
    1628
    $ find lib/perl5/5.24.0/ -type f | wc -l
    3151

    Thanks for the quick fix. But it seems it is not yet available for download.

    Will try again tomorrow morning (CEST).

    Can I try to get the perl-5.24.0_b003.170406.tar.gz now? In the morning the previous package was provided when I got me a download link.

    Hm something has changed. When clicking the download link I get:

    HTTP Status 500 -
    type Exception report

    message

    description The server encountered an internal error that prevented it from fulfilling this request.

    exception

    java.lang.NullPointerException

    Go to this page. Press “Download”. Enter needed information. Then you will receive an email to access the downloads. Use “access all z/OS Open Source Tools” link.

    Tatyana, what do you think I did?

    I went to http://www.rocketsoftware.com/free-tools-ibm, clicked on View all Dowloads, filled out the form. Then I got the Rocket Download link by mail, clicked it and got above reported HTTP Status 500 … error
