Install Perlbrew in Ubuntu Image in Docker Desktop
Documenting this because the instructions on the Perlbrew website completely failed for me.
I got various errors, including an error 5888 when I tried to run perlbrew.
I started with the default Ubuntu image on Docker Desktop:
I opened the terminal and did the following:
# apt update && apt upgrade
# apt install perlbrew
# perlbrew init
# cd /root
# echo ' source ~/perl5/perlbrew/etc/bashrc' >> .profile
# perlbrew install-cpanm
Some of these commands ('perlbrew;, 'perlbrew install cpanm') may not have been necessary, but were just tests. Also, you might not want to run this for 'root' but use another user instead.
I tested with:
# perlbrew install perl-5.34.0
And as I write, this install is still working.
Update: 1 test failed, "Failed test: 121". Looking it up on Google suggests it's related to time::Local and not serious.
Hope this helps someone who is searching for the solution.
