Dear all,

I cannot install WebMO on my UNIX machine system IRIX6.5 . When I wanted ti=o install by using the command "% perl setup.pl", always, I have the comment " syntax error at setup.pl line 583, near "temp foreach" Execution of setup.pl aborted due to compilation errors.

So, how can I solve this problem? Could you please to give me for advice. Thank you very much for your kind consideration.

What version of perl are you using? You can check using 'perl -v'. WebMO requires Perl 5.0 or higher.

Also make sure that you have no accidently altered the setup script!

The terminal says there is a syntax error line 36 and the line above "can only be used in a function"

Please copy the entire contents of the terminal, INCLUDING WHAT YOU TYPED and the OUTPUT here. This could be a Lion issue, although I am a bit skeptical.

Use perl 5.24 rather than 5.26. This will be resolved in the next release.
