Zoidberg - a modular perl shell, version 0.981 ================================================ http://github.com/jberger/Zoidberg Zoidberg provides a modular Perl shell written, configured, and operated entirely in Perl. It aspires to be a fully operational login shell with all the features one normally expects. But it also gives direct access to Perl objects and data structures from the command line, and allows you to run Perl code within the scope of your commandline. For usage information please see the zoiduser manpage: https://github.com/jberger/Zoidberg/blob/master/man1/zoiduser.pod INSTALLATION First of all you need perl <www.perl.org>, it is very likely this is already on your system. Zoidberg is tested for perl versions 5.6.1 and 5.8.2, but you are welcome to also file bug reports for other versions of perl. Modules which are not in the Zoidberg package but are depended upon by Zoidberg are listed in the file "Build.PL" -- these modules are available from CPAN <http://cpan.org> or your CPAN client (i.e. cpanm). On most clean systems you will need to install: Exporter::Tidy File::ShareDir The following are also recommended: Env::PS1 Term::ReadKey Term::ReadLine::Zoid To install the package untar it, change to the new dir and type: > perl Build.PL > ./Build > ./Build test > ./Build install To install in your home dir try using the `cpanm` client which may be installed 1) from CPAN by installing the 'App::cpanminus' package or 2) curl -L http://cpanmin.us | perl - --sudo App::cpanminus In the latter case the `--sudo` option is only needed if installing using the system Perl. Once cpanm is installed, try > cpanm Bundle::Zoidberg which will manage the installation process for you! To see all possible build actions type: > ./Build help > ./Build help action Zoidberg now uses the File::ShareDir architecture for keeping its shared files. This allows for greater portability of the install process. Zoidberg will still search for zoidrc files at '/etc/zoidrc', '$HOME/.zoidrc' and plugins in '/usr/share/zoid/', '/usr/local/share/zoid/', '$HOME/.zoid/' as it did previously. If you need to add a directory to the include path -for example the install path where you installed the dependencies- use the PERL5LIB environment variable, using "perl -Isomedir" won't do. For advanced installation options, see the Module::Build documentation. CONFIGURATION See the zoiduser(1) manual page. BUGS AND LIMITATIONS To submit bug reports visit http://github.com/jberger/Zoidberg/issues or mail the author. The Zoidberg shell is being developed for GNU/Linux, but should also run on other flavours of unix. Please _do_ bug report bugs or OS dpendent problems for other operatings systems.
