How to change the perl installed path

Posted by dotnetuser on 2010-07-20 04:51

Hi,
I installed perl 5.10 under c:\perl_510 to test it and after having tested it and installed all missing modules would like to change the directory to c:\perl i.e the standard path. Its there any possibility of doing this? I think just renaming the directory and setting the env variable 'path' ist not sufficient as all the installed packaged have this installed directory in their .packlist files and also doing a search of the string c:\perl_510 yields a lot of files with this string hard-coded in them.
Any help is very much appreciated

thanks

That's the best advice I can give you. Treat it like an upgrade from a previous version of Perl, and use the PPM-Profile tool to help re-install all your modules.
