Perl is still my favourite programming language, and Perlbrew is still my preferred method to install it (with pkgsrc coming a close second).

Today I learned that you can install the most recent stable version of Perl, and switch to it, from one line:

$ perlbrew install --switch stable

Previously I’d run list and pulled the most recent version:

$ perlbrew list | head -1

COMMAND: INSTALL Usage:

    perlbrew install [options] <perl-release>
