How to use this image

Create a Dockerfile in your Perl app project

FROM perl:5.20
COPY . /usr/src/myapp
WORKDIR /usr/src/myapp
CMD [ "perl", "./your-daemon-or-script.pl" ]

Then, build and run the Docker image:

docker build -t my-perl-app .
docker run -it --rm --name my-running-app my-perl-app

Run a single Perl script

For many simple, single file projects, you may find it inconvenient to write a complete Dockerfile. In such cases, you can run a Perl script by using the Perl Docker image directly:

docker run -it --rm --name my-running-script -v "$(pwd)":/usr/src/myapp -w /usr/src/myapp perl:5.20 perl your-daemon-or-script.pl
