FAQ ^

How can I use patchperl plugins?

If you want to use patchperl plugins, please Google "PERL5_PATCHPERL_PLUGIN".

What's the difference between perlbrew?

perlbrew is a perl5 installation manager. But perl-build is a simple perl5 compilation and installation assistant tool. It makes perl5 installation easily. That's all. perl-build doesn't care about the user's environment.

So, perl-build is just a installer.

THANKS TO ^

Most of the code was taken from App::perlbrew.

TYPESTER - suggests --patches option
