hi

I have freeBSD 7.0 installed.
I've updated my perl installation from perl5-8-8 tu perl5.8.9
is it possible to upgrade all installed perl modules from ports using a one single command ?

Well, there is a command called perl-after-upgrade, which should do that. However, me and some other people here have found that that isn't always panning out, so following perl-after-upgrade with portupgrade -f p5* (or the portmaster counterpart of that) is advisable.

thx, but it doesn't work:
Code:
# portupgrade -f p5*
portupgrade: No match.

Maybe portupgrade -f p5\* (assuming first of all you have p5 modules showing up in pkg_info) in some shells?
