perl mail


i am quite new with linux/perl etc....

this is part of a perl mail script:
---------------------------------------------
#!/usr/bin/perl -T

use strict;
use CGI;
use Config::General;<----------this gives me an error
use Net::SMTP;

-----------------------------------------
the error in apache log:
-------------------------------------------
Can't locate Config/General.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.6.1/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.6.1 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl) at /var/www/cgi-bin/mail.pl line 5.

Did you install the General Config module? You can find it at CPAN by searching on Config::General. Just download the .tar.gz file, extract it and follow the instructions in the INSTALL file. By the way, if you are just starting out with perl, CPAN is an invaluable resource. You also might want to check out PerlMonks and the LQO Programming forum here for advice. There are several good perl programmers that follow the LQO board.

Perl modules are usually drop dead easy to install, but post back if you have trouble.
