Subject: Install to 'site' instead of 'perl' when perl version is 5.11+
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 464b
Hello, According to dual-life distributions can be installed to 'site' instead of 'perl' on versions 5.11+, since those look into 'site' first. The attached patch amends the injection of the INSTALLDIRS directive in Makefile.PL to happen only when the perl version is below 5.11 and at least 5.8 (originally it was injected generally for 5.8+). regards, Robert Sedlacek
