in reply to how do you install a perl app::someapp module in bash

Hi,

I hope your first question is about installing your script in linux machine, so you could launch the script from any directory. For this, either you can change the $PATH bash variable in ~/.bashrc file, append it with the directory which your script exists or create a link to your script under any directory which already exists in $PATH.

export PATH="$PATH:/home/YOU/YOUR_DIRECTORY";

For your second question to make the script executable, yes, you have to give it executable permission and don't forget to add the shabang inside the script.

    Yes you need to make your perl script executable, or you need to specify the perl interpreter path manually like, #/usr/bin/perl perlprogram.pl

    Ah Thanks, this is what I was looking for. But what event (or WHEN?) do I do this? Is there an install event that will give me a handle to when a module is installing.

    So any ideas about windows? I'm guessing I have to change the PATH variable and there is probably a perl module for it :)
