in reply to perl modules

Well, it's a shot in the dark - but if you got started with Perl the same way I did, then you installed Active Perl.

In that case all you would need to do is type "ppm" at the command prompt, and CTRL+2 will let you view/search the installed Perl modules on your machine.

But, that's just a shot in the dark. A little more commentary next time would yield much more beneficial answers. Or you could try asking a question or two in the chatterbox.

    C:\perlfiles>instmodsh
    Available commands are:
    l - List all installed modul
    m <module> - Select a module

    cmd? l

    How to check details of these packages ?
    How come I dont see CGI.pm in here. When I type "perldoc cgi.pm", I get to see details. How can we check what subroutines are available in each module ?

    2)I typed ppm on cmd prompt and I got a separate console opening up as "perl package manager" , with names of different packages in it. When I click on different packages, it does not open. So how to check these packages ?
