  • * 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.
