          Find the directory given as

          perl -V:sitelib

          That should end in 5.8.3. The old one ended in 5.8.1 nearby. Copy
          everything from the old one to the new one, BEING CAREFUL NOT TO
          OVERWRITE ANY NEW FILES AND TO MAINTAIN THE DIRECTORY HIERARCHY.

              Would it be wise to hose the 5.8.1 directory after that? I guess some
              file will have to be modified for the search path (is it Config.pm or
              which one?).
              If 5.8.1 is not deleteable, then it means file duplicity??? I am a
              newbie and those questions have always eaten into my mind.

              My other question is: why did you (Merlyn) advise that the modules be
              moved? I've always assumed that when you upgrade, the old version is
              still in the search path and so would still be usable. Stupid me!

              Thanks in advance.

                Only if you also delete the 5.8.1 binary which is probabably still
                in your bin directory. Perl sets up both /usr/bin/perl (maybe
                /usr/local/bin/per) and /usr/bin/perl5.8.1 so that you can freeze
                a #! line against a particular version of Perl. If you remove that
                (and hopefully none of your scripts refer to it :-), then you can
                also remove the 5.8.1 lib directory safely as well.

                Sometimes, it finds it, sometimes it doesn't. You also said
                "installed the standard way"... if that was from a binary RPM, it'd
                likely not have the old path. if "perl -V" shows that 5.8.1 is
                included there anyway, then you don't have to immediately move anything.

                The problem comes eventually when you've installed *some* new modules:
                they'll shadow the older ones in the old directory, and now you're wasting
                disk space.

                Because of that, I like to abandon the old directories as soon as possible.
