Coverage Status CPAN version



Devel::IPerl depends upon the ZeroMQ library (ZMQ) and Project Jupyter in order to work.



On Debian-based systems, you can install ZeroMQ using apt.

sudo apt install libzmq3-dev 

If you use Homebrew on macOS, you can install ZeroMQ by using

brew install zmq

You may also need to install cpanm this way by using

brew install cpanm
Installing ZeroMQ without a package manager

Some systems may not have a package manager (e.g,. Windows) or you may want to avoid using the package manager.

Make sure you have Perl, a C/C++ compiler, and a CPAN client (cpanm) on your system.

Then run the following command

cpanm --notest Alien::ZMQ::latest

It has been tested on GNU/Linux, macOS, and Windows (Strawberry Perl

Note: There are currently issues with installing on Windows using ActivePerl and older versions of Strawberry Perl. These are mostly due to having an older toolchain which causes builds of the native libraries to fail.


See the Jupyter install page to see how to install Jupyter.

On Debian, you can install using apt:

sudo apt install jupyter-console jupyter-notebook

If you know how to use pip, this may be as easy as

pip install -U jupyter
# or use pip3 (for Python 3) instead of pip

Make sure Jupyter is in the path by running

jupyter --version

Install from CPAN

cpanm Devel::IPerl


iperl console  # start the console

iperl notebook # start the notebook
