This recipe works for me as my quick hack. So I just share what I did which might help someone who experiences similar error.
Basically, if you got this kind of error
Bareword "CURLOPT_xxx" not allowed while "strict subs"
on OSX 10.9.x Mavericks when trying to install WWW::Curl and its wrapper.
It’s time to get a more recent version of curl and gcc
First, upgrade or install curl with homebrew
brew install curl
In this case, the installed version is 7.34.0
Set the CURL_CONFIG variable to the proper curl-config path instead of the one provided by Apple.
After a few attempts with cpanm -v WWW::Curl, the problem is still there.
Download and build WWW::Curl is an alternative.
curl -O http://cpan.metacpan.org/authors/id/S/SZ/SZBALINT/WWW-Curl-4.15.tar.gz
Extract and go inside the WWW-Curl-4.15 directory
gunzip -c WWW-Curl-4.15.tar.gz | tar -xvf - cd WWW-Curl-4.15
At this point, perl Makefile.PL should work but apple provides the old gcc or something else doesn’t work…
Let’s try to install gcc49
brew install homebrew/versions/gcc49
Run the following to replace the cpp with cpp-4.9
sed -i.bak "s|cpp\"|/usr/local/Cellar/gcc49/4.9-20140119/bin/cpp-4.9\"|g" Makefile.PL
After you have replaced. Immediately, run
Then, modify the result Makefile
sed -i.bak "s|CC = cc|CC = /usr/local/Cellar/gcc49/4.9-20140119/bin/gcc-4.9|g" Makefile
Now it’s time to get a proper installation.
make make test make install
cpanm -v WWW::Curl::Simple
