I will be using this website: http://mirror.fsf.org/dragora/current/sources/perl-5.28.0.tar.gz to get the software.
Unzip the tarball file with: tar xvf perl-5.28.0.tar.gz
Change your directory to the perl-5.28.0
Open and read the INSTALL file:
sh Configure -de
Open and read the README file:
./Configure -des -Dprefix=$HOME/localperl
Using the example from the README file I will make a new directory for my testing.
./Configure -des -Dprefix=$HOME/testlocalperl
The configuration takes a while (about 3-5 minutes)
Now to setup the package.
The make command takes a while (about 8-10 minutes)
Now to do a test of the package.
command: make test
The make test command takes a while (about 9-12 minutes)
The result message for me:
Elapsed 1144 sec.
u=12.84 s=4.08 cu=843.10 cs=71.87 scripts=2465 tests=1158632
Comment: All of the instructions were in the README and INSTALL files. It was really straight-forward to perform.
