in reply to automating perl installation

i am planning to write a perl script to automatically install perl from source on ubuntu 11.04

You can save the effort, apt-src do exactly this for you. In fact perl is installed at the same time that Ubuntu

After the README.gz file you can positively run configure with extra options (i.e:  ./Configure -des -Dprefix=$HOME/localperl)

"If you run into any trouble whatsoever or you need to install a customized version of Perl, you should read the detailed instructions in the "INSTALL" file that came with this distribution."

[Eily]: oh, boolean context uses the "" overload if no bool overload has been defined
[Eily]: (I wondered if overloading bool was actually necessary)
[Corion]: Yeah, you need bool to get a true value, and the rest to return the other value ;)
[choroba]: perl -wE '{package o; use Tie::Scalar; use parent -norequire => "Tie::StdScalar" ;sub FETCH { "x" x int rand 2}} tie my $x, "o" ; say $x for 1 .. 10'
[choroba]: for complete ness
