Name        : perlbrew
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 0.50
Release     : 1.fc18
URL         : http://search.cpan.org/dist/App-perlbrew/
Summary     : Manage perl installations in your $HOME
Description :
perlbrew is a program to automate the building and installation of perl in
the users HOME. At the moment, it installs everything to ~/perl5/perlbrew,
and requires you to tweak your PATH by including a bashrc/cshrc file it
provides. You then can benefit from not having to run 'sudo' commands to
install cpan modules because those are installed inside your HOME too. It's
almost like an isolated perl environments.

Update Information:

The perlbrew update includes
* properly remove perlbrew-related PERL5LIB entries. GH #197
* Fix the build for perl-5.12 and 5.14 -- userelocatableinc are not working properly.
* The build log output "build.log" is now named after the installation name for eaiser reference.
* Fix the invokation configure command to actually contains -Duserelocatableinc
* Experimental: bash/zsh users may put this to shell init instead: eval "$(~/perl5/perlbrew/bin/perlbrew init -)"
* A few output message updates
* New command: download.
* userelocatableinc is enabled by default when the installing perl version is greater than or equals to 5.8.9. It should make some use cases eaiser. In particular, you can move PERLBREW_ROOT directory to another place.
* fix https://github.com/gugod/App-perlbrew/issues/216 for bash users and zsh users
