I am trying to install Crypt-PasswdMD5-1.40 on a Solaris 10 box and get the following -
xxxxxxxx:/tmp/Crypt-PasswdMD5-1.40# perl Makefile.PL
Writing Makefile for Crypt::PasswdMD5
, or } expected while parsing object/hash, at character offset 330 (before ""author":["Luis E. M...") at /usr/perl5/5.8.4/lib/CPAN/Meta/Converter.pm line 23
I have the following version on Converter.pm -
our $VERSION = '2.112150'; # VERSION
I have sourced a much later copy of Converter.pm and the problem goes away if I move it into place under /usr but this doesn't help me longterm. I don't seem to be able to find a report of this as a bug but I am guessing it has come up within the perl community before and I also don't seem to be able to find out which later version of CPAN::Meta resolved this or which earlier version is still good.
Can anyone offer any pointers? Thanks in advance.
