Can't locate XML/LibXML.pm in @INC with unsupported Perl - nicka - 10-09-2018

I'm having a problem installing.

I've downloaded the package and run it, with the result being a folder in the Applications folder with various commands in it. When I double-click 'get_iplayer.command' a Terminal window opens and I get the following error:

Quote:/Applications/get_iplayer/get_iplayer.command ; exit;
Nicks-Computer-2:~ nick$ /Applications/get_iplayer/get_iplayer.command ; exit;

BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/local/get_iplayer/bin/get_iplayer line 3134.

What am I doing wrong?

(I'm not sure if it's relevant, but I have version 3.0 installed and was trying to upgrade.)

RE: Installation failure - dinky - 10-09-2018

As you're told in the install docs, only macOS system Perl is supported. If you use an unsupported Perl installation, it is your responsibility to configure it properly. The modules you need are listed in the documentation.

Thanks!

I wasn't aware that I had non-standard Perl installation. Presumably it's a side-effect of something else I've installed at some stage. So now I'll try to work out how to put it back to how it should be...
