Hi Jon,

I most often just install by hand, something like

tar zxvf perl_module.pm-1.23.tar.gz
cd perl_module.pm-1.23/
perl Makefile.PL
make test
make install


Quoting Jon  Miller <jlmiller at mmtnetworks.com.au>:

> Like to know how to install a perl module.  Is it done as such:
> cpan install module::name
> I noticed there are some questions that you are prompt to answer.
> Or is it better to download the module and install it manually?
> Thanks
