Default installing Perlbrew

Does anybody have an advice for installing Perlbrew on a Mac OS X Mt Lion?

I am about to do it as the book suggests and any advice would be appreciated.

Follow the instructions here: http://perlbrew.pl

NOTE: One thing after install you need to add this to ~/.bash_profile: source ~/perl5/perlbrew/etc/bashrc

If that doesn't work ask away.

Lightbulb A little bit of advice on using perlbrew

Installing perlbrew is easy. Just follow the instructions on http://perlbrew.pl
Whats a little bit trickier is learning to use perlbrew to build perl with the same options you would expect on a running system. The standard command 'perlbrew install perl-5.X.X' will easily compile and install a plain version of perl with no problems. If you want to enable threads, use the perl malloc, or any other compile time customizations, then you probably need to read the perlbrew docs.
