Hi, you want Perlbrew for Perl on MacOS. Homebrew for other packages.


The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

    Installation worked fine. Don't have too much time to try out if everything works perfectly but I guess it does. I had a couple questions which I could anser myself while installation on the perlbrew website plus this guide on digitalocean.com for centos.

      That's great. Very nice of you to follow up.

      I assume you're now going to be using cpanm for installing modules from CPAN, as recommended and facilitated by perlbrew ... if so, I urge installing App::cpanminus::reporter in each Perl version and contributing your test reports to the CPAN Testers service (by simply typing cpanm-reporter after you've installed a module or a group of them). It's a great and almost effortless way to give back to the amazing infrastructure that makes working with Perl (including different Perl versions on different OSes) so easy and enjoyable.

      Have fun!

        I didn't knew this module yet, but I'm more then happy if I can give something back. Just out of curiosity, would you do this after each try? Sometimes I'm getting unsuccessful install MODULE::Name because I'm missing dependencies. After installing dependencies the installation works fine. Would you do a report after each try or just after finishing all kinds of stuff and before closing the cpan shell?
