Released versions of SD are available on CPAN and in Debian and Ubuntu. If you're running one of these operating systems, you can install the latest prophet release like this:

apt-get install sd

SD is currently undergoing rapid development however, so we recommend installing directly from Git if you can.

Before you install SD, you'll need to install Prophet..

The following command will get you a copy of the source tree you can install:

git clone git://

Once you've downloaded SD, you can install it:

cd sd

PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT=1 perl Makefile.PL

make test

make install

In the hopefully unlikely event that SD doesn't pass its tests, please tell the developers about it so we can improve things.
