Re: [Zhris] Parsing data from TXT file into XMP format with ExifTool

This is all quite new to me, I have been going over various instructions and believe I understand most of it, but I cannot get cpan to install. I went to the link you referenced to and noticed that I could install Perlbrew and it would contain cpan but was not sure if the instructions on the site would work for me as it's not a good idea to install on the root:

I didn't see the "perl - -l ~/perl5" command on the install instructions for Perlbrew ("\curl -L | bash") so didn't want to risk it, I just can't re-install OS X on my main machine, it's just not an option right now.

The command you had from another site produced the following: "-bash: fetch: command not found", it's not working for me.

Not really sure how to proceed, would like to know if Perlbrew is the way to go?

I don't know what it is about these command line installs but they never work first time, ever. I really what a difficult process ExifTool was to install, it was so difficult.

Also, the following command "perl -MImage::ExifTool -e ';'" produces the following error:

Can't locate Image/ in @INC (@INC contains: /opt/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.9/darwin-2level /opt/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.9 /opt/local/lib/perl5/site_perl /opt/local/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.9/darwin-2level /opt/local/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.9 /opt/local/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /opt/local/lib/perl5/5.8.9/darwin-2level /opt/local/lib/perl5/5.8.9 .). 
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.

Any advice please?
