perlnoob06990 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am really new to perl and not very knowledgeable when it comes to coding.
I have just downloaded the latest version of activeperl and also eclipse. From there I downloaded the eclipse epic plug in.
My problem now is that I would like to install the PadWalker-1.96 debugger for eclipse but I honestly do not know how to install modules and get them to work in eclipse.
I've been looking up links such as: http://www.cpan.org/modules/INSTALL.html
but they really confuse me because I tried downloading the putty terminal emulator but kept receiving connection refused errors even before I was able to make an attempt at downloading cpanm.
PLEASE HELP, I'm really lost right now, if you can give me a step by step process on how instal the padwalker debugger and to get it to work in eclipse, it would seriously mean a lot to me. I've been spiting hairs for the last couple hours trying to figure all of this out.
