perl problems on setting up application

Error: Unable to locate installed Perl libraries or Perl source code.

It is recommended that you install perl in a standard location before
building extensions. Some precompiled versions of perl do not contain
these header files, so you cannot build extensions. In such a case,
please build and install your perl from a fresh perl distribution. It
usually solves this kind of problem.

is there an rpm anywhere for this

thanks to all who can help a newbie

What exactly are you trying to install and have you checked to see whether or not perl is already installed?

rpm -qa | grep perl

i think u need to install the perl module from website

u will find latest version of perl there as tar ball. Download it and then untar it into a directory. Then give 4 commands into that dir.

perl Makefile.PL
make test
make install

I think this should work
