Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

No, first become root, then run perl -MCPAN -e shell then type install CGI::Carp (before you can do this, you will be prompted to set up how CPAN downloads and installs modules -- if in doubt, go with the defaults, they;re very reasonable). The perl -MCPAN -e shell command launches a little shell that allows you to easily update the Perl on your system and install new modules. This is what you need to do here.
Just saw your last post -- the Carp may not be the same as CGI::Carp, particularly if it's not in a directory called CGI. Try the steps above anyhow.
I downloaded CPAN and put it all in the right directories.. I typed perl -MCPAN -e shell and I get this..
CPAN is the world-wide archive of perl resources. It consists of about
100 sites that all replicate the same contents all around the globe.
Many countries have at least one CPAN site already. The resources
found on CPAN are easily accessible with the CPAN.pm module. If you
want to use CPAN.pm, you have to configure it properly.
If you do not want to enter a dialog now, you can answer 'no' to this
question and I'll try to autoconfigure. (Note: you can revisit this
dialog anytime later by typing 'o conf init' at the cpan prompt.)
Probably, but don't worry, it's mostly painless (as I said, just accept the defaults if in doubt). Don't worry, you're almost there now . Of course, you can try your luck with the default configuration and go back and do it by hand if something goes wrong.

That's from the error log.. this is so annoying! lol. What does that mean? I've downloaded and installed the module from the CPAN shell. Everything is setup, I think.
