in reply to To install a module...

PPM is probably easier, but who likes change, good ol' make on linux for me...i tried to use the CPAN.pm once a while back, it was like 4 in the morning, i was half asleep, and whatever i did, it starting installing perl...on a P266 that takes quite a while, and at 4 in the morning i wasnt too happy, so i'll probably stick with make, its more fun anyway :-p

    Older versions of the CPAN module will do that. Fetch a fresh CPAN.pm tarball and install it manually, then you'll be able to use the CPAN shell from there on without it pigheadedly insisting on upgrading your Perl.

    I was bit by that too. I believe that problem was fixed, or at least it will prompt.

[Corion]: perldigious: That seems to be more the export and likely it's the recipients of that export that like the titles changes
[Corion]: ... "changed"
[Corion]: I usually expect fixed header names, but am sometimes lenient in the order of columns. But changing the report titles often sounds to me as if you are not the sole consument of the export ;)
[shmem]: perldigious: as always - if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Ther must be a very compelling reason for changing column names in a database. Those are rare.
[Corion]: If you have whitespace in the column names in the database, whap the DBAs ;)
