( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I've done all of these. The primary reasons to build your own perl are to use your own compile options (so you can turn off threads, for example) or to avoid Debian auto-upgrading a module you depend on.

If neither of those concern you, making packages with the script you mention or the one in CPANPLUS seems good because you can uninstall them. The problem you'll encounter is that some modules have build scripts that are hard to deal with, but there's no way around this.

    [marioroy]: I also have a Hobo driver for Forklift allowing folks to use in multiple classes, no conflicts with one another. That's not possible for P::FM.
    [Discipulus]: congrats marioroy!
    [marioroy]: CORE::wait works well eventhough multiple instances or classes using Hobo::Manager.
    [Corion]: marioroy: I'm not sure what the normal use for the PID is in P:FM, but I guess that most programs just ignore or log it
    [Corion]: Oh, yes, programs could call wait $pid, but if your $pid is an object, then you could add a ->wait method to it and wait $pid would call that automatically "thanks" to indirect object notation
    [marioroy]: Just documentation edits is all that remains. Hobo::Simple provides foreach and forseq with identifier capability -- all transparently supporting array, hash, file handle, and seq 1 .. N.
    [marioroy]: Corion Regarding PID, that's great. So will leave it so compatible with MCE::Hobo. e.g. ->create returns a Hobo object. Folks can get ->pid from it. So, that's not a problem.
    [choroba]: ad readdir: 5.12 needed
    [marioroy]: CORE::wait can block if another process reaps a worker from another class. MCE::Hobo takes care of that and transparently.
