in reply to Issue with ActivePerl installation on Fedora 20

Hello as00060,

I stopped using Fedora more than 10 years ago, but did you look in '/usr/local/bin' directory? If you see links in that directory to other programs, you should be able to add the following:

ln -s /opt/perl/ActivePerl-5.20/bin/perl myperl # use whatever nam +e you want
Then when you type 'myperl' on the command line it should use the Active Perl command you installed.

That should work no matter what account you're 'login'ed under.

Good Luck...Ed
