Old style of updates: update whole perl core package. New packages need the latest version, which makes the process of packaging perl modules slower and painful.Creating updates of modules in main perl package is complicated, sometimes almost impossible because of change in directories/paths inside of the main package. This process should help maintainability of core perl package. For updates has been developed Fedora:: App:: Maintainer Tools Usage: But, maintainertool can't handle unusual macros like: Name: perl-%.

Perl modules are typically installed in one of several directories whose paths are placed in the Perl interpreter when it is first compiled; on Unix-like operating systems, common paths include /usr/lib/perl5, /usr/local/lib/perl5, and several of their subdirectories. Some of these perform bootstrapping tasks, such as , which is used for building and installing other extension modules; others, like CGI.pm, are merely commonly used. Forking, and creating competing modules for the same task or purpose is common.Both have the Download links that we won't click on.Both Strawberry Perl, and its derivative DWIM Perl for Windows, come with an already configured cpan client.
