  • H-Sphere


In version 2.5 and up, all necessary Perl modules to be used by H-Sphere on supported OS are installed from a single package hsphere-perl-x-x.

There is no need to update H-Sphere Perl modules by yourself, as when Perl version is updated/downgraded, the /hsphere/local/config/perl/hspmod.switch utility is used to switch Perl to a proper H-Sphere Perl modules version.
hspmod.switch has the following syntax:

hspmod.switch { -l | -v perl_version }
-l lists all possible H-Sphere perl module versions you may switch to.
-v switches to the modules of proper perl_version, which must be specified in 0-9.0-9.0-9 format.

The modules for both native OS perl and currently stable perl (versions 5.8.7 and 5.8.8) are included into the latest perl package update.

The following Perl modules are installed to /hsphere/shared/lib/perl5/ or /hsphere/shared/lib/perl5/site_perl: The above mentioned modules are installed with hsphere-perl and required for proper H-Sphere work. If you need other system Perl modules, you should install them by yourself.
