Re: got many error messages trying to install Net::Twitter
Message ID:

This list (macperl-modules) is for perl on the old, classic Mac. All the macperl lists are. Perl on Mac OS X perl is standard perl plus some stuff that's specifically Mac OS X, whereas the perl on the classic Mac was standard perl minus a tiny bit and with some emulation layers that made things a little fun at times.

(I don't think anyone is listening here anymore, either.)

Anyway, try at instead. (I'd forward it for you, but you need to sign up there anyway.)
