I am currently setting up a backup script on a macOS Sierra machine. In the logs some warnings related to the tool appeared, so I looked them up. Seems like this is caused by a missing
Lchown Perl module, so I set out to install it (being a complete newbie to everything Perl related).
Following a guide I found, I started with running
sudo cpan and following on screen configuration instructions. This seems to have done quite a lot and now I am unsure if I messed with the OS' Perl installation.
According to the install logs, a directory
perl5 have been created in my user's directory at
Users/me/– this is probably okay. The log also indicates that a lot of files have been copied, like:
cp lib/ExtUtils/MakeMaker/version.pm blib/lib/ExtUtils/MakeMaker/version.pm, and I neither know the from nor the to location.
- Did I do anything harmful to my system's Perl installation running the above command?
- Can I somehow easily reverse the installation process? Should I?
