Since the release of the Vagrant based Perl Development Environment the VirtualBox image has been updated. If you followed the instruction in that article and installed the PDE a earlier, you might have an outdated version of the VirtualBox image.

As part of the big counter example project, this example runs on the command line and uses a plain text file as back-end 'database'. It is the second most basic version of all the counter examples, that provides multiple counters. (The most simple one provided a single counter. It accepts a value (a word) on the command line and uses a separate counter for each such value.
In the counter examples we have already seen command line solutions, but we have not used MongoDB as the back-end storage. There is a counter with MongoDB client and we are using the solution from there, but from Perl.
