Run multiple versions of Perl from your home directory

Run multiple versions of Perl from your home directory using Perlbrew!

One thing to know:  Perl won’t compile if you have an encrypted home directory. 🙁 Bug has been fixed but not exactly how and it hasn’t been put into the Ubuntu updates yet.
Thanks goes to Kang-min Liu for creating Perlbrew!!!! 🙂

The recommended way to install perlbrew is to run these statements in your shell:

curl -LO http://xrl.us/perlbrew
    chmod +x perlbrew
    ./perlbrew install

After that, perlbrew installs itself to ~/perl5/perlbrew/bin, and you should follow the instruction on screen to setup your .bashrc or .cshrc to put it in your PATH.
