Re: swinstall -s


If you do; swlist -l file -s /tmp/perl-5.6.1.depot \*

It will list the files and which directories they install to. It should all go to /opt/perl

Re: swinstall -s

You shouldnt go creating links for it. Once its installed it will add entries to /etc/PATH and /etc/MANPATH so that all future logins will have the perl binary directory automatically in their paths. At least it should add them automatically - if not vi these files and add them in yourself.

Re: swinstall -s

Most scripts specify
#!/usr/bin/perl
or
#!/usr/local/bin/perl

You have a couple of options for these.
- create symbolic or hard links to /opt/perl
- edit the scripts to use the correct path.

The Programming perl book has a fixscripts program that
could be modified to edit your scripts to use a consistent
location for perl.

Re: swinstall -s

Hi

The software is installed under /opt , but then you can install it using w/o the swinstall , perl itself has scripts to create links etc .
