Not much more to add, but chiming in with a hearty "seconded". It's much safer to have your own separate "application" perl (which can be owned by a non-privileged user if you so desire) and don't touch the OS' copy.

You'll be more than glad you took the 15-20 minutes it takes to build /usr/local/perl-5.10.0 when you realize after updating things that the package manager would have rolled you back to Foo-0.31 despite your having upgraded to Foo-0.42 and you've saved at least that much time not having to diagnose that (to say nothing of the next n times something similar is going to happen; or of the flexibility you get by being able to move to 5.10.1 6 months before your OS finally gets 5.8.9).

The cake is a lie.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
