:perldo s/something/other/ E319: Sorry, the command is not available in this version
In spite of my previous actions which I thought led to a successfully non-gimped Vim install, it turns out that I actually ended up getting
rubydo to work AT THE EXPENSE of
Apparently what I actually needed was
vim-perl doesn't work. One shadows the other. They must both provide the same files. But stupid apt never told me there was any problem.
In fact right now I have
vim-full installed. I just uninstalled
vim-perl and reinstalled it and it let me do it, but I have no idea what it did. It didn't affect my ability to use perldo even when
vim-perl is uninstalled.
When I do
aptitude show vim-full it says
... Conflicts: vim-gnome (< 1:6.4-001+3), vim-gtk (< 1:6.4-001+3), vim-lesstif (< 1:6.4-001+3), vim-perl (< 1:6.4-001+3), vim-pyt<span></span>hon (< 1:6.4-001+3), vim-ruby (< 1:6.4-001+3), vim-tcl (< 1:6.4-001+3), vim-tiny (< 1:6.4-001+3), vim-common (< 1:6.4-001+3) ...
Apparently "Conflicts" does not mean "Prevents you from installing them all at the same time". Thanks Ubuntu.
EDIT: No, the current
vim-perl I'm installing is
version 1:7.0-164+1ubuntu7.1, so it doesn't conflict. But it still doesn't seem to do the right thing.
