[l2h] redhat 7
Wed, 7 Mar 2001 15:55:03 -0700 (MST)
I tried 2 installations. The first was the latest beta from ctan
(latex2html-99.2beta8.tar.gz, which is Dec 21, 2000). The second was
latex2html-99.1-1.noarch.rpm They each seemed to install ok, but I got a
perl script error in each case. Here is the error from the second
installation (sorry for not including it before):
Bareword found where operator expected at /usr/local/bin/latex2html line
2, near "/usr/bin"
(Missing operator before bin?)
syntax error at /usr/local/bin/latex2html line 2, near "/usr/bin"
"use" not allowed in expression at /usr/local/bin/latex2html line 55, at
end of line
BEGIN not safe after errors--compilation aborted at
/usr/local/bin/latex2html line 60.
I don't know perl and I'm fairly new to linux. I'm wondering if anyone
has seen this and found a fix.
