A couple while ago I needed some Perl modules which were not available on my standard TW repos so I installed them from CPAN.
This process put a Perl5 subdirectory in my personal directory where I promptly forgot about it.
Recently I renamed this directory en route to getting rid of it altogether, only to find that I needed it again. All now working as required but this has raised a couple of questions as I note that the Perl5 subdirectoy has contents such as:-
perl5/lib/perl5/5.28.0 which all date from when I first installed.
So how should I arrange these modules to be updated if they were from CPAN and where should I have installed CPAN rather than have it on my personal home directory?
Hi Tsu and many thanks. Useful link which I have not used before, even without the oopensuse typo!. My perl problem was that I had been pointed in wrong direction by installation instructions, hence I used cpan etc. and wasted some time.
I have now removed the unwanted stuff as the repo has all I need.
Once again, thanks,
