well, of course, you're right. is right there in front of me. if i
had been thinking about my find command i would have seen it ;-)
still, i'm missing Carp/

hm. now it complains about File/Spec/ which i certainly do not
have. I found File/Spec/* but nothing like the above :-(

and after removing that i get another error. the following line is not
accepted by perl 5.005_03 "my $name=~ s/.*://;" in line 371
from my experience with perl it would have thought that it won't work but
perl 5.6.0 seems to be rather friendly ... don't know whether i like that

hm. that's not too reassuring, is it? ;-)
