Perl Modules and nzbperl


Hi, I am trying to install nzbperl, http://noisybox.net/computers/nzbperl/ on my desktop running Slackware 10.2. It says it requires perl modules, and lists them: http://noisybox.net/computers/nzbperl/#requirements

I use their example but change the name each time, but some will not download. I have never used perl, nor do I have any idea about what I am doing. My friend uses Debian and used apt-get to get this program, so he can't help me.

Anyone know what I am doing wrong?

I guess you'll have to describe exactly how you try to install a Perl module and which errors you get. Give an example.

Thanks for replying!

I tried to install them all using this command: perl -MCPAN -e "install XML:OM"
Replacing XML:OM with the names of the mmodules listed on that site. The ones that did not work are as follows:
File::Basename
Term::ReadKey
Term::Cap
Cwd

I get the same error occur with each of those modules. The "name" changes with each one, of course. The rest of the modules installed without a hitch.
root@whoracle:/# perl -MCPAN -e "install File::Basename"
Can't locate object method "install" via package "File::Basename" at -e line 1.

Seems to me like the module is installed already. In any case, you can try "perl -MCPAN -e shell", which will open the CPAN shell. There "i File::Basename" will tell you if the module is installed, and "install File::Basename" should work.

Thanks heaps. I did that, and some were installed, and others weren't. I just ran through them all using the i <module name> in the shell and found what was wrong. Now all I need to do is figure out how to get the actual program running. Thanks again.
