Where is the CA.pl?

I am learning how to setup SSL for Apache. The first step is always setup SSL certs. Most information you found in the Google and the even the latest Apache Cookbook all pointed to the CA.pl which had been come with openssl. I am using Fedora 8 with the openssl-devel installed but like many other people - it just cannot be found.

Finally, I found out that you need to install openssl-perl. If you are using YUM, it would be

yum install openssl-perl

in Fedora 9, the file is located in /etc/pki/tls/misc/CA.pl - unlike in most documentation where it is said to be /usr/lib/ssl/misc/CA.pl

Note that in Ubuntu 16.04 this script is already installed by default with the "openssl" package but its directory is not in the PATH variable by default, anyway you can find it in "/usr/lib/ssl/misc/CA.pl".
