Install perl module


Hi All,

Is it possible to install a Perl module by taking the .pm file and locating it in the appropriate folder /usr/lib/perl/5.8.0/... ?

What is the differences between this method and the regular method (by makefile, make and make install) ?



Thanks,

Mosh.

a perl module can involve many things including xs code and such, which will require compilation, as a normal C program or such would require. IF the module is solely perl code, then you can just copy it yes. But the makefile is there to do anything extra if required.

For me the regular method to install a perl module (say for Net::Telnet) is :
$ su
# cd
# cpan
cpan > install Net::Telnet
cpan > exit
#
It take care of all dependencies and running cpan as root is for enable perl modules to other users
