Hi everyone,

Here's a quickie - I (once again) tried to download and install the GD.pm
module - Interface to Gd Graphics Library.

When I tried to install this module, I get the error:

> perl Makefile.PL lib=/devuser/srik/bin/perl/lib
Can't locate 5.60 in @INC (@INC contains:
/opt/perl5.00503/lib/5.00503/sun4-solaris /opt/perl5.00503/lib/5.00503
/opt/perl5.00503/lib/site_perl/5.005/sun4-solaris
/opt/perl5.00503/lib/site_perl/5.005 .) at Makefile.PL line 3.

Line 3 of Makefile.PL contains : require 5.6.0;

Does that mean it needs version 5.6 of Perl? Or a module called 5.6.0?
Where can I get this missing  module? [if indeed it's a module].


I'm running Perl 5.005_03 on Solaris 2.6.
I looked at the GD Readme at
http://cpan.uwinnipeg.ca/htdocs/GD/README.html - and it says that I need
Perl 5.004 or higher.

Happy holidays/Hag Sameach,
Srikanth Madani
