Install the Zef Module Manager
Rakudo takes a different approach than many other languages (including Perl): modules are by default installed in the home directory of the user. Accordingly, a script is supplied to install zef this way.
Zef will be installed to
~/.raku/bin/zef and modules will reside in
These instructions are also applicable for the root user.
If you update the package, running the script again will upgrade zef if a new version was available when the new package was released. Alternatively, you can upgrade zef through zef:
zef upgrade zef
If you run a minimalistic system like a container, you can install modules
with the bundled zef installation in
/opt/rakudo-pkg/bin/zef-as-root install SuperMAIN
