yum install -y perl-devel cpan make cpan Test::More cpan Params::Validate Math::Calc::Units Class::Accessor::Fast Config::Tiny
For Debian 7+/Ubuntu 14.04+:
apt-get install make libperl-dev libparams-validate-perl libmath-calc-units-perl libclass-accessor-perl libconfig-tiny-perl
For Fedora 25+:
dnf install -y make perl-devel 'perl(Params::Validate)' 'perl(Math::Calc::Units)' 'perl(Class::Accessor::Fast)' 'perl(Config::Tiny)' 'perl(Test::More)'

Enough talk! Show me where to start!
