( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I was thinking of just rsync'ing the following directories
/usr/opt/perl5/lib/5.8.8
/usr/opt/perl5/lib/site_perl/5.8.8

Sounds like a reasonable plan (if the machines are binary-compatible).  But note that if modules depend on 3rd-party shared libraries (installed in different locations), you'd have to distribute them too...  For the latter case, some packaging/distribution tool might be easier to use.

In case you intend to do larger cpan installations, in particular of modules that might risk destabilizing any system tools that rely on the Perl installation as it ships, you might want to think about setting up a second separate Perl installation for your own use (e.g. in /usr/local/perl/...), into which you then install the CPAN modules (and rsync them...).

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
