bash$ pwd

bash$ sudo perl Makefile.PL
Warning: prerequisite Expect 1.14 not found.

Below is the method I am using,

To manually install a Perl module:

1. Download the Perl module from CPAN or other site.
2. Extract the tarball.
3. Run perl Makefile.PL

This thread is old but the solution is to install the missing perl packages noted from "perl"

(This is for people like me who come seeking help)

Please follow any of the 4 methods according to your convenience

>>>> If you have the list of modules with you then, (you have to install cpanm first)
- Installing cpanm
tar zxvf App-cpanminus-1.5017.tar.gz
cd App-cpanminus-1.5017
/bin/perl Makefile.PL
make ; make install

-- Installing the modules later

/bin/cpanm --scandeps <space separated moudle list>
/bin/cpanm -v --installdeps <space separated moudle list>
/bin/cpanm -v <space separated moudle list>

>>> If you already have a Bundle file created from machine which has all required modules installed

/bin/perl -MCPAN -e 'install Bundle::Snapshot_2011_07_25_00'

>>> Modules can be installed from cpan shell as well

/bin/perl -MCPAN -e shell
> install <module name>

>>> Lastly, go for manual installing all dependent modules
