It ain't gonna work on Mavericks in native mode apparently - at least not without more work that I want to put in it, and to just get undone on the next update of OSX. And almost assuredly it won't work on Yosemite. The best way is to install PerlBrew and maintain an independent Perl.
Several good reasons.
Easy to install.
Tk runs fine.
The Perl install is in your home folder and does not need root permission for install or update or to add Cpan modules.
You can have any version of Perl you want.
If you trash it somehow, just dump the folder and reinstall.
You can easily switch back and forth between system perl and the perlbrew perl.
No chance of hosing up OSX with trying to install languages that Apple doesn't care about.
Your bang line will have to be modified if you publish it.
You will need to download the XQuartz dmg from sourceforge to get the X11 stuff if needed.
