NAME ^

LocalModInstall - Install Perl modules locally (into your home directory)

SYNOPSIS ^

  perl -S LocalModInstall.pl
  make
  make test
  make install

DESCRIPTION ^

Install the "LocalModInstall" package using the usual incantation

  perl Makefile.PL
  make install

or move the file "LocalModInstall.pl" into one of the directories in your $PATH and make it executable ("chmod a+x LocalModInstall.pl").

Then use

  perl -S LocalModInstall.pl

instead of

  perl Makefile.PL

whenever you want to install a module locally.

After that, use

  make
  make test
  make install

as usual.

The script "LocalModInstall.pl" will print out the correct settings to use for the "use lib" statement in your scripts or the "PERL5LIB" environment variable, as well as the "MANPATH" environment variable.

VERSION ^

This man page documents "LocalModInstall" version 1.0.
