Anyone know how to update perl to the latest version using DA?

or is there a way to do it in command line?

Thanks

Perl is considered part of the FreeBSD system so you cannot install or update it via the DA interface. So make sure you have root access to the box and type in this:

cd /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8
make
make install
use.perl port

This should get you the latest version.
