"Installed" Perl 5.34 , sort ofby misterperl (Pilgrim)
|on May 05, 2022 at 15:26 UTC||Need Help??|
misterperl has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I hope its OK to ask Perl install questions here? If not, my apologies be gentle!
I ran these steps from the CPAN README on install from source:
I did all of those steps, and it created 3 dirs under ~root/local: bin, lib, and man , comprising the 5.34 build.
But there the instructions stop. I think there must be another step where either I symlink whatever I find in "which perl" to this dir (probably not , since I don't think everyone should run Perl out of ~root), or I backup and copy over certain files in certain directories.
Can someone please add a "tail" to this guide with the way to make 5.34 the system-wide default for "which perl" ? I've installed Perl years ago, and I thought the "install" step did that for me?
