User shlomif ported several applications over to FreeBSD and reflects on his experience. He lists said projects, mentions some comparisons with Linux, GNU make, grep, and other things.
I set up a local FreeBSD VirtualBox VM to test something, and it seems to work very well. Due to the novelty factor, I decided to get my software projects to build and pass the tests there.
Some CPAN Modules fail to install using local-lib there
- No idea why.
cpanm -n(“no test”) helps.
pkg install -y p5-Foo-Baras root for other times.
