Trying to get a better handle on how perl installs things, and the logic behind it. So I can have modules installed to a local directory, multiple versions of a module, and so on.
Now, with respect to
Installing modules locally
and especially to tinita's answer at
Re: Installing modules locally
Makefile.PL PREFIX=/home/gabor/perl5lib LIB=/home/gabor/perl5lib
At least this has been working well for me. All modules are now instal
+led in the given directory instead of architecture-dependant ones and
+ such and in the architecture dependant ones.
I'd like to ask, what is the meaning of the "PREFIX" and "LIB" parameters to makefile?
And where's this documented?
