  • * The -z option on tar is not standard. The more appropriate -- for cross-platform purposes -- command is

    gzip -dc local-lib-1.004004.tar.gz | tar -xf -

    * You should mention that you should only run make install if none of the steps fails. Perhaps phrasing the code as

    perl Makefile.PL --bootstrap && make && make test && make install

    * .bashrc is only one of the possible places for that code to go (for instance, it is .profile under ksh) and you need different code if you are using csh.

    * you have completely ignored Win32

    • Thanks for your comments, I've updated the article accordingly. Note that the guide is aimed at UNIX users who don't have root access, that's why there's no information about Windows. Cheers, JJ
