in thread Installing modules in personal lib directory

Sorry, I made a mess: ppm3 is for win's Active Perl, and my host is Linux. Forget about the ppm3 installation.

Maybe using CPAN module, but Im not sure on how to set the installation path to my personal lib directory...

As for the procedure you mentioned, Joost, please give me more details.

      when you first use the CPAN shell it asks you a couple of configuration questions. One of the questions asks for 'makepl' arguments (don't remember the specific term), if you enter 'PREFIX=/home/user/perl' (change the path to reflect the location you want your stuff installed in), the CPAN shell (for that user) will always install in /home/user/perl (if the modules take the PREFIX directive).

      You can change your CPAN shell config by editting it's configfile (usually in ~/.cpan/CPAN/
