How to install Perl Udapi

These guidelines are for Linux, but Perl Udapi should work on other platforms as well.

Perl setup

  • You need Perl 5.10 or higher (ideally 5.22). Check Perlbrew.
  • You need cpanm v1.6 or higher. If you don't have perl from Perlbrew and you don't have root (sudo) access, you can use local::lib to install Perl modules locally, e.g. in your ~/perl5/. To install cpanm and local::lib in one step you can use:
wget -O- | perl - -l ~/perl5 App::cpanminus local::lib
eval `perl -I ~/perl5/lib/perl5 -Mlocal::lib`
echo '## Install Perl modules to ~/perl5 by default ##' >> ~/.bashrc
echo 'eval `perl -I ~/perl5/lib/perl5 -Mlocal::lib`'    >> ~/.bashrc

Udapi for users

Udapi has not been released to CPAN yet. We recommend to install it (and all its dependencies) directly from GitHub.

cpanm git://

This installs Udapi to your standard Perl paths (~/perl5/lib/perl5/ if you followed the steps above), but it's not versioned in git, so you cannot contribute by pull requests etc.

Udapi for developers

Let's clone the git repo to ~/udapi-perl/ and setup $PATH and $PERL5LIB accordingly.

git clone
cpanm --installdeps ./udapi-perl
echo '## Use Udapi from ~/udapi-perl/ ##'               >> ~/.bashrc
echo 'export PATH="$HOME/udapi-perl/script:$PATH"'      >> ~/.bashrc
echo 'export PERL5LIB="$HOME/udapi-perl/lib:$PERL5LIB"' >> ~/.bashrc
source ~/.bashrc # or open new bash

Test Udapi -h

or cd udapi-perl/demo/ and run ./
