Ich liebe Perl. Perl ist toll um kleine und komplexe Aufgaben schnell zu erledigen.
Unter Linux ist Perl kein Problem, weil es immer vorinstalliert ist und die großen Distributionen schon sehr viele Module mitbringen. Aber wie geht das auf dem MacBook oder unter MacOSX?
Ich habe viele komplizierte Porenbeiträge gelesen und schon die Hände über dem Kopf zusammengeschlagen. Dann habe ich einfach cpan im Terminal eingetippt und siehe da. Das reicht. Der Rest geht automatisch.

~/work $ cpan

CPAN.pm requires configuration, but most of it can be done automatically.

If you answer ‘no’ below, you will enter an interactive dialog for each

configuration option instead.

Would you like to configure as much as possible automatically? [yes]

Use of uninitialized value $what in concatenation (.) or string at /System/Library/Perl/5.18/App/Cpan.pm line 553, <STDIN> line 1.


Warning: You do not have write permission for Perl library directories.

To install modules, you need to configure a local Perl library directory or

escalate your privileges.  CPAN can help you by bootstrapping the local::lib

module or by configuring itself to use ‘sudo’ (if available).  You may also

resolve this problem manually if you need to customize your setup.

What approach do you want?  (Choose ‘local::lib’, ‘sudo’ or ‘manual’)


Autoconfigured everything but ‘urllist’.

Now you need to choose your CPAN mirror sites.  You can let me

pick mirrors for you, you can select them from a list or you

can enter them by hand.

Would you like me to automatically choose some CPAN mirror

sites for you? (This means connecting to the Internet) [yes]

New CPAN.pm version (v2.05) available.

[Currently running version is v2.00]

You might want to try

install CPAN

reload cpan

to both upgrade CPAN.pm and run the new version without leaving

the current session.

Das war’s. Danach einfach span eintippen und fertig.
