in thread Raspberry Pi and Perl

I like to start a new Raspberry Pi install with apt-get install libdancer-perl libdist-zilla-perl. Even if I'm not going to use Dancer, it pulls in a whole lot of dependencies without some of the extra overhead of cpanm.

HiPi was recently updated to work on the Zero and Pi 2/3.

I wouldn't expect a huge gain on the Pi3 until there's a 64-bit version of the OS. Right now, it's just a small clockrate bump from the Pi2.

    cpanm overhead? lol what?

      I guess that apt-get just copies files while cpanmn queries its mothership for dependencies and usually runs tests.

        Yes, there's a big performance hit when running tests/compiling, especially if the device is running from SD card, which most do.
