How To Install And Manage Perl 5.32 With The State Tool
With Perl 5.32 we’ve created a brand new ecosystem that provides a new way to install and manage Perl from ActiveState. This video explains how you can use Perl 5.32 to take advantage of:
- A cloud-based toolchain for building Perl dependencies in parallel
- Virtual environments for creating isolated working directories
In this video, we show you how to use our package manager, the State Tool to install and manage Perl 5.32. By taking advantage of the new ecosystem we’ve created for Perl 5.32, a single command line is all that is needed to install Perl.
After installing our State Tool, not only will you be able to add dependencies from a CPANfile or a META.json file, you can also import dependencies directly from our library by using the state search function. Our library contains 90% of CPAN and is updated every 48 hours.
That’s it! In a few command lines, we now have Perl 5.32 installed in a virtual environment, ready for work.
Follow along our demo video step by step and install a Perl environment in minutes! Get more information about ActiveState’s new perl ecosystem here.
