Building module by handby techgirl (Beadle)
|on Nov 03, 2004 at 15:13 UTC||Need Help??|
techgirl has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
To build a module by hand on a Unix machine,* is this correct?
I put the unpacked source into/home/user/.cpan/build
Navigate to that directory and type
And this creates the proper (everything)?
And -- when removing modules on a Unix machine, I just remove the same directory that was created in
One node here says that using CPAN and 'clean' will remove a module as well. Can someone verify that...
*The reason that I'm building by scratch is because I do not want the latest version of certain modules; I want older versions.
