in thread Installing modules to a private module directory

Instead of PREFIX, you can use INSTALL_BASE, which I believe is now the perferred option for Module::Build and ExtUtils::MakeMaker (so long as you have up-to-date versions of both). I haven't had a problem with this, altho I haven't installed all of CPAN with it.

You still run into the problem of setting your @INC, since things seem to randomly install in a subdirectory called either 'site_perl', 'perl5' or '5.x.x', meaning you have to add 3 entries to your @INC. This can be annoying if your paths can change depending on the box you're working on.

[james28909]: in order for there to be a mutation, there has to be a universe with laws setup that even allow a mutation.
[james28909]: everything past the first two things you piked from my posts are irrelevant to me and my beliefs. they are side effects.
[james28909]: two or three. if it has to do with how humans are handling said situations, then that is after they were able to evolve into those problems. agnostic means only believe with evidence. i took that from a tyson video
[james28909]: and it seems that racism suggest that there is indeed a better race, but that is for evolution to decide
[1nickt]: "right now, humans are smarter than in any of those times": define "smart"
[erix]: ah, now you're appraoch downvote-territory ;)
