in reply to Install parallel Perl on Debian

Hi,

Please forgive me my honestness/undiplomacy in the following lines.

Oh god this is such a kludge one couldn't believe it. If one wants to use different perls in parallel, it shouldn't be sticked to just 2 instances, but generally to n, furthermore these perls should be installed with your familiar package manager (being made a package before), and last but not least you should have an user program that would *for every user on the system* a) list the available perls, b) show the current perl he uses c) allow to switch between perls for this user only.

having said all that, we have such a system for SuSE Linux and will publish it (brother ph0enix will) within the next month (i.e. when he returns from vacation and does some garbage collection of the pending duties ;-)).

Bye
