perl5i requires a lot of modules, and installing Perl modules can be a major pain if you've never done it before and you don't have root. Here's our quickstart guide to setting up Perl and installing perl5i.
There's four problems to be solved.
- Install a recent version of Perl.
- Configure a CPAN shell to install modules in your home directory.
- Configure Perl to find modules in your home directory.
- Install perl5i.

- OS X users...
- Windows users..
Fortunately, there are tools to make this a short process.
The tools and process are different for Windows and Unix.
