Perl on Androids

Steve_BZ has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi Guys,

I'm just going through the steps to install Perl on Android (see here: http://code.google.com/p/perldroid/wiki/Compiling5160).

It uses Perl 5.16.

As I'm currently working on Kubuntu 12.04 lts with Perl 5.14, I don't really want to disturb my current development. So what are your thoughts. Should I just upgrade my Perl to 5.16, and it'll all be fine, or should I (read "is there a way to") isolate the two Perls.

What are your thoughts.

Regards

Steve.

    I would assume that the same steps apply to Perl 5.14.

    See perlbrew for a way to keep different versions of Perl separate.

    If you're considering Perl on Android, I recommend talking to castaway, as she's working on cross-compiling Perl for Android. I assume that she also has Perl already running on Android directly.

      Thanks for that, Steve.

    Citrus Perl is an easy install. I use it on Ubuntu 10.10.

    There's never enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it over...
