in reply to open a browser from the command line, wait a few seconds, and shut it. (ie, translate forking from bash to perl)
will give it another shot.
Currently though, after
perl -MCPAN -e 'install Mozilla::DOM'
*** can not find package for any of (mozilla-xpcom >= 1.7, firefox-xpc
+om >= 1.0, mozilla-firefox-xpcom >= 1.0)
*** check that one of them is properly installed and available in PKG_
apt-cache search isn't pulling these up on my ubuntu box. (and package management is completely &)#@ed on the SUSE 10.1 box I use at work.)
UPDATE: regarding the above, I guess I need to start at http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Build_Documentation
(It's just not in .deb form yet).
But I'm going home now, so perhaps to be continued.
