perlbrew is a program to automate the building and installation of perl in an easy way. It installs everything to
~/perl5/perlbrew, and requires you to tweak your PATH by including a bashrc/cshrc file it provides. You then can benefit from not having to run 'sudo' commands to install cpan modules because those are installed inside your HOME too. It provides multiple isolated perl environments, and a mechanism for you to switch between them.
For the documentation of perlbrew usage see perlbrew command on CPAN, or by running
perlbrew help. The following documentation features the API of
App::perlbrew module, and may not be remotely close to what your want to read.
- (Str) current_perl
Return the "current perl" object attribute string, or, if absent, the value of PERLBREW_PERL environment variable.
- (Str) current_perl (Str)
Set the "current_perl" object attribute to the given value.
perlbrew project uses github http://github.com/gugod/App-perlbrew/issues and RT <https://rt.cpan.org/Dist/Display.html?Queue=App-perlbrew> for issue tracking. Issues sent to these two systems will eventually be reviewed and handled.
