What's so difficult about this?

In a word: *nix.

Your experience is Windows which runs essentially on a single processor type where to a reasonable extent the same binary will run on most machines. *nix applications live in a vastly different world where the processor and many aspects of the operating system mean that applications typically need to be built for the target system. It isn't generally as simple as "ship the executable" in the *nix world. Pure Perl applications have a reasonable chance of working across systems, but as soon as a module using compiled code is added to the mix things tend get complicated.

Optimising for fewest key strokes only makes sense transmitting to Pluto or beyond

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
