in thread Perlbrew issues. Suggest a way out.

... is there some preferred flavour of linux that any one of you could suggest?

Slackware

I second that. Slackware is one of the few Linux distributions that still use the shell (bash or ash) for all scripting. You can completely remove Perl and Slackware will still run (but remember that the Linux 3.x kernel needs perl 5 to compile - duh!), and you can replace the system Perl with any Perl you like.

[marto]: sounds fun, the opposite of my weekend :P
[Corion]: marto: You wrote Perl? Or did you have to work (and wrote Perl)?
[marto]: the fun part, I had no fun this weekend, very stressful :)
[Corion]: But I feel an introductory talk gestating, working title "Reading CPAN" - how to read module documentation, how to judge a module, how to read the module tests/examples
[Corion]: marto: Ouch :-/ The kids are making trouble?
[Corion]: Meh - food becons, and colleagues are staring at me, talk to you later, sorry!
