tphyahoo has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Trying to get a better handle on how perl installs things, and the logic behind it. So I can have modules installed to a local directory, multiple versions of a module, and so on.
Now, with respect to
and especially to tinita's answer at
I'd like to ask, what is the meaning of the "PREFIX" and "LIB" parameters to makefile? And where's this documented?just use: Makefile.PL PREFIX=/home/gabor/perl5lib LIB=/home/gabor/perl5lib At least this has been working well for me. All modules are now instal +led in the given directory instead of architecture-dependant ones and + such and in the architecture dependant ones.
