Perl Catalyst

software development


Did anyone here tried to use Catalyst on Dreamhost? I used some tutorials and got Catalyst installed, but I don’t know how to tell my application where is the .pm directories (they are installed inside ~/site/perl/…). Anyone can help me?

PS: Will Dreamhost make Catalyst available as default in the future?



If you haven’t figured it out already, you just need to ‘use lib’ your locally installed path at the top of your perl programs -

use lib qw(your/path/here);

So for you, you’d want:
use lib qw(/home/USERNAME/site/perl/local/share/PERL_VERSION);

(For most things … some things install in local/lib, etc - you just need to include the path to where ever the module is installed).
