As a lowly user without root access (on some machines), I sometimes have
to install Perl modules to run other software. I know that it is, in general,
possible to create a "local" installation, where all modules
reside in their respective subdirectories to the program directory
and/or the current directory.
But as I found, it is not as easy to give the "right" options to
both, ppd and Makefile.pl, as I think it should be. If some kind soul could
either point me to a page with detailed instructions on how to make
both methods of installation (CPAN/ppd and manual installation)
work with non-root, I'd be very grateful.
PS: By detailed, I mean a bit more than just "perl -w Makefile.pl --help"
or "just add the right prefix" - something more user friendly.
