  • If you are using a modern CPANPLUS then you can trick it into using different user configs by setting or changing the APPDATA environment variable.

  • You can all that by just running Configure once, and no editing of files.

    As explained in the INSTALL file, you can give an option to Configure to tell it where to install perl. -Dprefix=/home/perl-base/perl-5.8.8 will do.

    I typically run Configure something like this:

    ./Configure -des -Dusedevel -Dprefix=/opt/perl/5.9.4 -Dusemorebits -Doptimize=-g -Dusemorebits -Uversiononly -Dmydomain=.abigail.be -Dcf_email=abigail@abigail.be -Dperladmin=camel@abigail.be -Dcc=gcc

  • Yes, you COULD do this.

    OOOOORRRRRR, you could use one that was prepared earlier for PITA to run inside of.

    http://pitatesting.net/guests/sarge-x86.img.gz [pitatesting.net] (582 meg)

    This is a disk image for use with the qemu emulator.

    It has no less than EVERY single significant production Perl from and including the last 5.004 up to 5.8.8 pre-installed for you already.

  • I need to get around to updating these, but they're still pretty good:

  • The comments on this entry clearly demonstrate that there is more than one way to do it. :)
