Can I move the ActivePerl top level directory after installation?

Posted by cbbs70a on 2015-12-17 07:01

I am running ActivePerl 5.18 on all of my CentOS hosts and use the default installation directory of /opt/ActivePerl-5.18. However, I am wondering what the consequences would be if I renamed or moved the directory to say, /usr/local. Any insight at all would be greatly appreciated.

Perls can't be relocated. The only way to move a Perl and have it work is to create a link from the installed location to the new location.
