Perlbrew - Running init after install, automatically

gogod's perlbrew module allows one to perform some simple admin tasks so you don't need to have root access. After having installed it a few times over the last couple versions, I created a quick script to install and run the init on installation.

The output of the install contains all the info you need. (I guess this also adds a dependency of not only curl for installation but also grep and tee but they are found on most *nixs anyway.)

curl -L | \
sh | \
tee perlbrew_install.log | \
grep "bin/perlbrew init" | \
sh > perlbrew_init.log

In the future, watch for blogs entries as I attempt to create a development environment for perl on Hudson Jenkins.
