[Tex/LaTex] Sublime Text LatexTools fail


I am using Sublime Text 2 with LatexTools on OS X 10.6. When I build, I get "TraditionalBuilder: Invoking latexmk… done."
Yet Skim does not open the PDF. The problem might be related to the result of typing 'latexmk' in Terminal:

File::Path version 2.08 required--this is only version 2.07_02 at /usr/texbin/latexmk line 121.

What is the solution?

It would be best to update your Perl installation, since it appears to be several years outdated. (The release date of version 2.08 of the File::Path module is 2009-10-04; this is the minimum version that latexmk tests for.)

However, you could try changing the latexmk.pl file to change the line

use File::Path 2.08 qw( make_path );


use File::Path 2.07 qw( make_path );

If that gives you no trouble, you are OK.

(Perhaps some experts on Perl and its history could suggest whether the version test that I wrote into the latexmk code is too conservative.)
