  • You dont need root access to install DBI in your own directories though you may get warnings if the install tries to add the docs to the Perl doc tree.
  • perl Makefile.PL Prefix=/pathtoyourdir/ should get round that
  • I dont see what use followed by require will give you (though that could be me missing something)

    Sorry, I meant that as an either/or case, not both in one script.

    My point was that using require you can run a series of tests (see Camel Book pg. 205) allowing you to determine points of failure in the import routine more specifically that via a use.
