Last week I posted about local::lib, some of the work I was doing on it, and what I wanted to get done.
Well, it's done (for now). As of 1.004001,
local::lib comes with an example script that completely bootstraps
local::lib into an arbitrary directory. It installs cleanly on a fresh install of Perl 5.8.8, just like this:
wget -O- http://weftsoar.net/~hdp/scripted_install.pl \
| TARGET=./local perl
(I copied the script to my server so the URL is shorter -- it's the same as what's on CPAN, though.)
- A shorter url (t0m suggested http://install.local-lib.pl, which would be pretty cute)
- Better shell/environment integration -- right now, you have to Just Know how to get at the directory that
local::libcreated for you
- Build tool integration, e.g.
make localinstalldeps(that's a bit of a mouthful)
