Custom Perl in Slackware?
Merry happy, all -
Lately I've been trying to get better at Perl debugging, since Perl is the language I use most these days. I've discovered that there are some options I can't explore unless the Perl I'm using was compiled with the DEBUGGING flag ... and this seems not to be the case with Slackware's Perl.
So I'm not sure whether the best thing to do would be roll my own "alternate" Perl with DEBUGGING, or ... something else.
It's a naive question, but I guess that the Perl in the Slackware package is already compiled, right? I mean it wouldn't do me any good to try to reinstall Slackware's Perl with a modified install script ...?
Thanks for any pointers,
