NAME ^

install_perl.pl

SYNOPSIS ^

install_perl.pl [-d directory] [-v perl_version] [-m manifest]

DESCRIPTION ^

Build a complete Perl and all CPAN modules in the specified directory. It takes the name of a directory within which to install Perl. It then populates it with everything that you specify.

OPTIONS ^

directory (optional)

This is the directory within which the directory Perl is installed will be created. The actual directory will be a subdirectory of this with a name of the timestamp of creation. This defaults to '.'

* perl_version (optional)

This is the Perl version you wish to install. This defaults to 'stable'. If you choose to specify a devel version, this script will still work as expected. (Tested using 5.9.5 to exercise a bug in another module.)

manifest (optional)

This is the manifest of CPAN modules that will be passed to install_cpan_modules.pl (provided with this distribution). That will install all the CPAN modules within the just-built-perl's directory. If this is specified, then install_cpan_modules.pl will be called. If it is not, then it will not be called. Please q.v. install_cpan_modules.pl for the format of this file.
