apsend install problem RH9


i couldn't find a rpm for apsend-1.61 so i figured i would install it from source on my red hat machine. I followed the instructions and did the perl Makefile.PL, make, and make install. Now i try to use the command apsend and it says command not found. When i go to the directory i unzipped everything to there is the apsend executable but it doesn't work fromk there. do i need to put this file somewhere manually for it to work? or did the make install not put it in a place where i can use it from anywhere? I am kinda a noob and dont know where to go from here.

Try:
find / -name apsend

There may be more information in the software documentation.

nope, that didn't work. and if you want i can post you the software documentation but i think i have told you as much as it has told me. It basically says do the steps i described. Thats it. the find command returned nothing except a directory under perl5/ something a mile long and the dirs where i untar'ed it to.

interesting thing happened......................... I was installing Mysql and i had to do this command according to instructions:
perl -MCPAN -e 'install DBI'
I got a similar error as when i tried to run the apsend binary from the dir i untar'ed it to which is,
Can't find CPAN.pm in @INC
only when i try to do ./apsend i get the error,
Can't find Net/RawIP.pm in @INC
This is above me. Can anyone tell me what is going on with this @INC thing? I installed RawIP and it didn't give me a problem so why do i get this error. Is this a RH thing? What is a .pm file anyway?

Sorry i ask a lot of questions.
