  • Great instructions, though they reflect 5.6.1 rather than 5.8. Did you use these instructions (with appropriate substitutions) for 5.8?
    • Thanks; I hoped someone would find them useful. Yeah, I need to update for 5.8

      Yes, I did use these for 5.8 this morning; I was HTML-izing them as I watched the test suite run in another window.

  • With all these 5.8.0 release candidates, I set up a script that I adapted from one Abigail [perl.org] gave me. Makes it much easier than sitting thru all the questions.

    ./Configure \
        -des \
        -Uversiononly \
        -Dmydomain=.petdance.com \
        -Dcf_email=andy@petdance.com \
        -Dperladmin=andy@petdance.com \
        -Doptimize=-g \
        -Dusemorebits \
        -Dusedevel \
        -Dusenm=false \
        -Darchlib=$version_dir/lib/$version

    • Abigail is the queen of multiple installs

      Yeah, that /opt tree at YAPC was something to behold.

      Maybe that means Abigail gets to benefit from my one and only patch to perl: a fix to MakeMaker that allowed you to do perl5.6.1 Makefile.PL instead of having to /usr/local/bin/perl5.6.1 Makefile.PL. I kind of like multiple installs myself, and that was one of the first things I ran into.
