teperl README

teperl 0.04

This is the README file for teperl, a perl script to process embedded perl in a file.

The teperl script was written as a minimalist replacement for eperl which hadn't changed since 1998, and as a consequence, failed to install on Mandrake 9. This script uses the excellent Text::Template module instead.

For more information on how to use the script, see the pod documentation via the command perldoc teperl or, after installation, view the man pages with man teperl

Problems, questions, etc. may be sent to


To install the script and man pages in the standard areas, give the sequence of commands

perl Makefile.PL make
make test make install

If you want to install the script in your own private space, use

perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/my/private/perllib \

       INSTALLMAN1DIR=/my/private/perllib/man/man1 \

make test make install

Any libraries installed in such non-standard places may then need to have the appropriate path to them specified in the script.

Note that `make test` may not necessarily be enabled.


This script requires these other modules:
