( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

stevieb here, the person who took over and now maintains berrybrew (thanks for the mention, dasgar!).

At this time, there is no built-in way to manage external lib directories outside of each Perl instance, but it is on my roadmap (after I get my RasPi work completed).

Personally, I like each instance to have its own installation of modules, but I digress. It's been requested of me to build in the ability that you're asking for, and as I said, it's on the roadmap. For now, you can do what you're doing, or shift out @INC (unshift @INC, '/path/to/libs'). Some modules will break, others won't.

If you want an easy way to install a module on all Perl instances with berrybrew and avoid using a single lib dir:

berrybrew exec cpanm Module::Name

That'll install the module on all installed Perl instances. If you have a module to install but it won't work on some version, I've added in the ability to exec on certain versions only (NOTE: no space between the perl versions!):

berrybrew exec --with 5.24.0_64,5.10.1_32 cpanm Module::Name

If you have any problems or issues, or want to discuss options on how you'd like to see a lib option be implemented, feel free to open an issue on the berrybrew link above (my github), or message me here and I can send over my email address.

update: To boot, if you're working with Strawberry Perl portable editions, you can incorporate them into berrybrew by copying/moving the instance directory into c:\berrybrew directory, and ensure that it is named exactly the same as one of the entries in berrybrew available. Thereafter, you can clone it to whatever name you want. I did not get as far in the Perl registration logic to allow just dumping any old directory into the berrybrew dir and have it auto-register, but that feature isn't far off either./update

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
