phoenix007 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

How to install cpan module on specific Perl installation and on system default Perl ?

This is my first question here

Currently I am working on Ubuntu flavor of linux OS. I have default 5.26.1 version of Perl pre-installed. Output of perl -v command copy pasted below

This is perl 5, version 26, subversion 1 (v5.26.1) built for x86_64-linux-gnu-thread-multi

I have installed perl-5.8.9 using perlbrew and installed CPAN client cpanm. Now I am trying to install File::Find::Rule module then I am getting output mentioned below. Here I am not getting where this module got installed and how I can control module installation must be done in specific Perl installation

! ! Can't write to /usr/local/share/perl/5.26.1 and /usr/local/bin: Inst +alling modules to /home/kshitij/perl5 ! To turn off this warning, you have to do one of the following: ! - run me as a root or with --sudo option (to install to /usr/local +/share/perl/5.26.1 and /usr/local/bin) ! - Configure local::lib in your existing shell to set PERL_MM_OPT e +tc. ! - Install local::lib by running the following commands ! ! cpanm --local-lib=~/perl5 local::lib && eval $(perl -I ~/per +l5/lib/perl5/ -Mlocal::lib) ! --> Working on File::Find::Rule Fetching +4.tar.gz ... OK Configuring File-Find-Rule-0.34 ... OK ==> Found dependencies: Number::Compare, Text::Glob --> Working on Number::Compare Fetching +3.tar.gz ... OK Configuring Number-Compare-0.03 ...

OK Building and testing Text-Glob-0.11 ... OK Successfully installed Text-Glob-0.11 Building and testing File-Find-Rule-0.34 ... OK Successfully installed File-Find-Rule-0.34 3 distributions installed

I have also tried switching Perl using perlbrew. Note : when I hit command perlbrew list it only lists perl-5.8.9

    Did you complete the perlbrew setup as instructed?

    marto@Shemp:~$ perlbrew init perlbrew root (~/perl5/perlbrew) is initialized. Append the following piece of code to the end of your ~/.profile and s +tart a new shell, perlbrew should be up and fully functional from there: source ~/perl5/perlbrew/etc/bashrc Simply run `perlbrew` for usage details. Happy brewing!

    The two important steps here are to edit the profile and start a new shell. From past experience if you don't do this you may see unexpected things happening.

      Can't write to /usr/local/share/perl/5.26.1 and /usr/local/bin
      Did you complete the perlbrew setup as instructed?

      That seems to be the likely explanation. phoenix007: In addition to adding source ~/perl5/perlbrew/etc/bashrc to your ~/.bashrc file and logging out and back in again, make sure you either perlbrew use perl-5.8.9 (for the current shell only), or perlbrew switch perl-5.8.9 (make it the default for this and all future shells; I wouldn't recommend this though because 5.8.9 is quite old).

        Thanks haukex. perlbrew use perl-5.8.9 served my purpose of installing module to 5.8.9

      Thanks for help marto I have already done proper perlbrew setup

    The cpanm command you are using may be tied to system perl. Try running the command perlbrew install-cpanm to install one that will work properly with perlbrew.
