Gack. That was complete cockpit error. I tried to manually install the
necessary Perl packages. Then I remembered CPAN was a command that
handled all the server interaction, dependencies and building. The
reason for all the HTML fragments in the diagnostics I was getting was
that one of the files I manually retrieved from the CPAN package index
page was named with a .pm suffix, but was actually an HTML file (the
information page for that package).
I'm on the right track now, but Ask's simple command line:
perl -I$HOME/.cpan/build/JSON-1.15/lib -MJSON -e \
Just outputs a large number (135862740). It doesn't seem to matter what
JSON input I supply...
However, with only a tiny bit of tweaking (to make it a pure filter, at
least for now), your script works fine.
