#1: FAQ 8.47 How do I keep my own module/library directory?

Posted on 2008-01-28 03:03:02 by PerlFAQ Server

This is an excerpt from the latest version perlfaq8.pod, which
comes with the standard Perl distribution. These postings aim to
reduce the number of repeated questions as well as allow the community
to review and update the answers. The latest version of the complete
perlfaq is at http://faq.perl.org .

8.47: How do I keep my own module/library directory?

When you build modules, tell Perl where to install the modules.

For "Makefile.PL"-based distributions, use the PREFIX and LIB options
when generating Makefiles:

perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/mydir/perl LIB=/mydir/perl/lib

You can set this in your CPAN.pm configuration so modules automatically
install in your private library directory when you use the CPAN.pm
shell:

% cpan
cpan> o conf makepl_arg PREFIX=/mydir/perl,LIB=/mydir/perl/lib
cpan> o conf commit

For "Build.PL"-based distributions, use the --install_base option:

perl Build.PL --install_base /mydir/perl

You can configure CPAN.pm to automatically use this option too:

% cpan
cpan> o conf mbuild_arg --install_base /mydir/perl
cpan> o conf commit

The perlfaq-workers, a group of volunteers, maintain the perlfaq. They
are not necessarily experts in every domain where Perl might show up,
so please include as much information as possible and relevant in any
corrections. The perlfaq-workers also don't have access to every
operating system or platform, so please include relevant details for
corrections to examples that do not work on particular platforms.
Working code is greatly appreciated.
