Okay that seemed simple enough. However, given my complete lack of experience with perl, I think I may have download and somehow installed it on top of the system perl, which I see is not advised. So, I then installed brewperl, which installed into ~/ as expected. When I now invoke perl from a command line, I still get the system perl. My $PATH seems to have the brewperl settings at the very end rather at the very beginning of the PATH, but the configuration scripts did that. I’m not sure what to do at this point. I don’t want to ruin the system perl.
