Re: XML:XPath
Message ID:

I was going to suggest that your zef may be too old and doesn't yet  
know how to
handle the "+" in the dependency version. However, I don't see any  
module in the
ecosystem use the `0.0.7+` as version requirement any more (I know we had
one in the past, but I'm now unsure whether zef was taught to handle it or
whether the author simply reverted to simpler dependency specification).

You could try running:

     zef update
     zef upgrade zef

The first command will refresh zef's local information about available
modules and maybe it'll realize that module with "0.0.7+" version is no longer
required by another module. The second command will upgrade zef to  
latest version.

If you get any issues with the upgrade step, you can uninstall zef  
entirely and
install it from the repo (run commands in some temporary directory):

     zef uninstall zef
     git clone .
     perl6 -Ilib bin/zef install .

if you don't have `git` installed, you can just download and unpack the code
manually from
