in reply to Perlbrew issues. Suggest a way out.

Respected Monks,

Thank you very much for your replies...epsecially Flexvault and Zentara....Flexvault, your response was quite detailed and amazing. Zentara.....I am planning to go with CentOS or SL as thats much nearer to RHEL Servers which the business client uses. I sometimes wonder if perlmonks should be renamed as perltutlive :) Its your genuine helping nature that makes this community what it is.

For the others who want to know why I want some other version of Perl, I am going to write some scripts that will pull out data by opening an ssh session with some storage devices, capture the output in an array or variable and do stuff accordingly. I wonder if any other language would put up with a guy like me who is not very well versed with programming, yet trying to work on things...well, Perl surely does :) The management servers are all Windows and one of them has Perl Version 5.14.2 (DWIM Perl). So I need to have the same version of perl to try out stuff. Those systems do not have any internet connection, so I have to make do with whatever packages are installed in it.

I am going to find a way to install modules by manually copying files into the management server if the requirement comes up.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
