Perlbrew - Running init after install, automatically (wget option)

Following the discussion on Daniel's Page you can also install perlbrew using wget similar to using curl.

wget -O- --no-check-certificate | \
sh | \
tee perlbrew_install.log | \
grep "bin/perlbrew init" | \
sh > perlbrew_init.log

If you don't have admin rights on your development box to install curl but do have wget available, this is an alternative to the instructions in the perlbrew pod.


you can use the -O (capital oh, not zero) option to change where wget sends the file. so if you add -O- to your wget invocation, it'll send the code to stdout, and you can use the same pipeline as with curl.
