Perl 5.24 Docker image
This container image includes Perl 5.24 as a S2I base image for your Perl 5.24 applications.
Users can choose between RHEL and CentOS based builder images.
The RHEL image is available in the Red Hat Container Catalog
The CentOS image is then available on Docker Hub
The resulting image can be run using Docker.
Perl 5.24 available as docker container is a base platform for
building and running various Perl 5.24 applications and frameworks.
Perl is a high-level programming language with roots in C, sed, awk and shell scripting.
Perl is good at handling processes and files, and is especially good at handling text.
Perl's hallmarks are practicality and efficiency. While it is used to do a lot of
different things, Perl's most common applications are system administration utilities
and web programming.
For RHEL based image
$ s2i build https://github.com/sclorg/s2i-perl-container.git --context-dir=5.24/test/sample-test-app/ rhscl/perl-524-rhel7 perl-sample-app $ docker run -p 8080:8080 perl-sample-app
For CentOS based image
$ s2i build https://github.com/sclorg/s2i-perl-container.git --context-dir=5.24/test/sample-test-app/ centos/perl-524-centos7 perl-sample-app $ docker run -p 8080:8080 perl-sample-app
Accessing the application:
$ curl 127.0.0.1:8080
To set environment variables, you can place them as a key value pair into a
file inside your source code repository.
Allow the installation of all specified cpan packages and the running of their tests. The default value is

Number of simultaneous requests that will be handled by Apache. The default
is 256, but it will be automatically lowered if memory is limited.

If the PSGI_FILE variable is set to empty value, no PSGI application will
be detected and mod_perl not be reconfigured.
If the PSGI_FILE variable is set and non-empty, it will define path to
the PSGI application file. No detection will be used.
If the PSGI_FILE variable does not exist, autodetection will be used:
If exactly one ./*.psgi file exists, mod_perl will be configured to

This variable overrides location URI path that is handled path the PSGI
application. Default value is "/".
Dockerfile and other sources are available on https://github.com/sclorg/s2i-perl-container.
In that repository you also can find another versions of Perl environment Dockerfiles.
Dockerfile for CentOS is called Dockerfile, Dockerfile for RHEL is called Dockerfile.rhel7.
