Dear developers,

I have tried to install AMC with HomeBrew.
Following the instructions, I issued the following command:

sudo auto-multiple-choice latex-link

which gives me this error:

gettext.c: loadable library and perl binaries are mismatched (got handshake key 0xc500080, needed 0xc400080)

Do you have any advice how to proceed to solve this issue ?

Many thanks,


Extra information:

1) "brew info auto-multiple-choice" gives me this:

maelvalais/amc/auto-multiple-choice: stable 1.4.0 (bottled)
printable tests for students with OCR marking
Conflicts with:
auto-multiple-choice-devel (because both install `bin/auto-multiple-choice`)
/usr/local/Cellar/auto-multiple-choice/1.4.0_2 (1,101 files, 28.3MB) *

Could you open an issue in Easier for me 😁 Sorry for having taken so long to come across your issue

Could you try to

brew linkage auto-multiple-choice

and show the results?
