Re: Debian Perl or Brew Perl for production application?

I have worked in a couple places that prefer ActiveState perl.

I do a bit of perl programming (am JONASS on CPAN) and am a Debian
developer as well.

I use cpanm occationally on my developer laptop, but on production
servers I only use Debian packages.  I might "cheat" and install
backported packages or even unofficial .deb packages, but never
"side-installed" code on production servers.  Reason is that I want a
single place to keep track of all code installed on the system: APT.

You might consider ask your question at the debian-perl mailinglist, as
you are more likely to reach Perl folks there, I guess.
