What's in the box?

List of Perl 5 Modules and their versions that were explicitely installed. (In addition there are many others that were pulled in as dependencies of these modules.

How to install or upgrade


The code that is need to build and rebuild PDE can be found in this GitHub repository along with the instructions. If something is not clear to you then ask. It probably means it was not clear to me either and I'd better fix it.
