INSTALL - Installation instructions for Text::Similarity
perl Makefile.PL make make test make install
If you have superuser (root) access, you should be able to install Text::Similarity by following these simple steps:
perl Makefile.PL make make test # optional, but recommended su # or sudo, as the case may be make install
If you need to install this distribution in your local user account because you lack superuser privileges, then the recommended method on Unix-like systems (Linux, Solaris, Cygwin) is as follows:
perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=~/Text-Similarity LIB=~/MyPerlLib make make test make install
This will install the executable scripts into ~/Text-Similarity/bin, the man pages in ~/Text-Similarity/man, and the libraries into ~/MyPerlLib.
You will need to set your PERL5LIB variable to point to the LIB directory.
In csh or tcsh:
setenv PERL5LIB ~/MyPerlLib
Add these lines to your .bashrc, .bash_profile, or .cshrc files as the case may be.
