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.

[Lotus1]: perldigious I found out recently that opossums are very good at killing ticks.
Your Mother is lucky to only have to carry a kayak 15 feet to put in.
[perldigious]: If I was given the option to remove either mosquitos or ticks from the world... I think I'd pick ticks, even though I'd guess most would go the other way.
[Lotus1]: when they grooms themselves they eat any ticks they find. and apparently lots of ticks latch onto opossums.
[Your Mother]: There is a nice looking—don’t know first hand—new tool being market for removing ticks.
[Your Mother]: (marketed)
[Lotus1]: at least ticks don't fly
[1nickt]: We have a new tick in cenral New Jersey this year. The Lone Star tick -- no Lyme, but will give you an allergy to red meat!
[Your Mother]: "Tick Twister."
[1nickt]: My sister lives in the Sydney suburbs (carved out of the bush) and they have the Paralysis tick -- leavs you quadriplegic!
