pls consider:

  ~ root # lsb_release -a
  LSB Version:    :core-4.0-amd64:core-4.0-noarch:graphics-4.0-amd64:graphics-4.0-noarch:printing-4.0-amd64:printing-4.0-noarch
  Distributor ID: CentOS
  Description:    CentOS release 5.5 (Final)
  Release:        5.5
  Codename:       Final
  ~ root # yum groupinfo 'Development Tools'|egrep 'Description|perl'
   Description: These tools include core development tools such as automake, gcc, perl, python, and debuggers.

'perl' shows up in the Description for
the group 'Development Tools', but inot in the list of
packages given by yum groupinfo - appears to a laymen as a bug?

If 'Development Tools' does not supply perl, which yum group does?



# rpm -q perl
