Re: problem installing infobot



The problem is that on those lines, there is a \ in front of the N. I'm not
sure why, perhaps due to laziness. Anyway, you need to put the variable in
front of it as "${varname}" instead of "$varname" and then take away the \.
(I don't remember the name of the variable in question here... I also seem
to remember that on the last one (152) all you have to do is remove the \
because there is no variable in front of it)

It's happening because in versions of Perl prior to 5.6.0 \N was nothing
special, but now it is.
