in thread Merging XML

Ok, I am trying to install XML::Parser once again.. Help me out..
I would like to install it in ~/lib directory, where I put all my local modules.
First question is what I should put for makefile.
perl Makefile.PL ????

Thanks,
Artist

    perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=~

    This installs module stuff in ~/lib/ and binaries that ship with a module into ~/bin/, things like that. You can also use LIB=~/lib if you're just concerned about getting the module itself in the right place (which is usually sufficient for simple modules).

    See ExtUtils::MakeMaker for more interesting tidbits about the Makefile.PL that ships with standard module installations.
