Re: What are the "prefix" and "lib" arguments to makefile.pl used for?

in reply to What are the "prefix" and "lib" arguments to makefile.pl used for?

Take this example, Module::Starter comes with a command-line utility called module-starter. Setting the PREFIX variable would install the command-line utility there but Module/Starter.pm would get installed in the normal lib directory.

At least that is the way I understand it. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

    You're wrong ;-)

    Setting PREFIX would install both the module and the command line utility under PREFIX.
