Thanks for the update.

The INSTALL file on CPAN is also easier to read as a web link as it's in HTML format.

I found some documentation for PERL_SUB_DEPTH_WARN in perldiag and perl5101delta. The default setting of 100 is fine for me; I can always use no warnings 'recursion'; on the rare occasions where I might exceed this.

Thanks also for the script: I can see the rationale behind your naming convention.

    I just learned that perlbrew use XXX will look for an install named perl-XXX if it doesn't find one named XXX, so omitting the leading perl- in the name isn't critical. (It's surely the same thing for perlbrew switch.)

      I had a very brief look at the App::perlbrew code. The perl- prefix relates to CPAN URLs, e.g. I haven't dug any deeper than this but probably will do next week: there's still a few outstanding question marks.

      I've successfully compiled 5.14.2 with threads and tested my frequently used apps. I skipped the alias step: it isn't strictly necessary and I want to find out a bit more about it anyway (e.g. I still don't know what the -f option does).

      Thanks again for all your help with this.
