- INSTALLPRIVLIB, etc.
In particular, I think it would be useful to have the users, purpose and
persistency of the variables described in a central location. Also, why
do we continue to maintain the distinction between perl and perl5?
perlmodinstall makes the extraordinary statement:
For instance, where I say "perl Makefile.PL", you can substitute "perl
Makefile.PL PREFIX=/my/perl_directory" to install the modules into
"/my/perl_directory". Then you can use the modules from your Perl
programs with "use lib "/my/perl_directory/lib/site_perl";" or sometimes
just "use "/my/perl_directory";".
thus suggesting that the only way to use non-standard paths is by
modifying the source code. If that were true, it would be a reason to
switch to python or something else.
Any thoughts are appreciated,
