in thread What is the best way to install CPAN modules on Debian?

Doh! I forgot the GNU companion CD. I always use http://sunfreeware.com/ instead.

Still, I've had issues getting the installed Perl to play nicely with gcc on Solaris. I just started building a parallel Perl system under /usr/local when I set up new systems. Is it just me? I've booked a lot more time on Solaris 8 & 9 than 10, so perhaps my information's outdated.

    For Solaris systems where I don't have access to the SUN compiler, I typically install Perl somewhere (/opt/perl for instance), and just link /usr/bin/perl to /opt/perl/bin/perl. I then compile using gcc.

    Actually, I've often done the same if I do have access to the SUN compiler.

    Solaris shouldn't break down if you replace /usr/bin/perl, and I've never experienced any problems by doing so.

    But this thread was about Debian, not Solaris.
