ShermW0829 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Can I just rm -rfv my built and installed module in my home directory. I'm using lubuntu. I am including how I installed the module.

 module-starter --module=testdir::moduletest --author="Sherman Willden"

 perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/home/sherman/module_test


 make test

 make install

      Thank you. I thought it might be in some library or something that would show up as a missing entity and I would have to use some command to remove the entry. Sherman
        If you're in the build directory,  make uninstall might also work
