blueAdept has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm made some attempts towards doing this, but I'm looking for others experience/insights. I'm not sure this is a windows specific question, but thats the platform I'm using. If on my windows machine I build/install(perl 5.8.4) perl to lets say D:\utils\perl, and I later want to move it to another location -- what do I need to do?
Simply copying it isn't enough since modules I've installed contain the original path. Do I need to copy, and then parse every text file to substitute out the old path with the new one? Is that enough/everything? What about binary files like .dll's -- are those not of concern?
Appreciate any insights or references. thanks!
