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

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.

[Corion]: marto: Yeah, I'm also short of not reading it at all. I already stopped reading it in the morning because it gave me a foul mood.
[Corion]: The good posts on HN are the non-computing posts. Most of the other stuff is maybe relevant to you if you are 20 and live in Silicon Valley...
[Corion]: Two attributes that don't describe me.
[Corion]: Maybe I should also write a curator for HN or simply not read it anymore, like you do.
