in thread Problems with CPAN module installation

Thanks Corion, well I ran this little perl program to check: use ExtUtils::Installed; my $inst = ExtUtils::Installed->new(); my @modules = $inst->modules(); \n and it gave those modules as installed: Bundle::NetSNMP FCGI File::HomeDir File::Which IPC::Run3 LWP Mac::SystemDirectory Mail Perl Probe::Perl Test::Script URI XML::Parser XML::Quote they should have been among this list- right? Well I'll try to install then a new version of perl. I should be able to get the latest perl version myself? (confused about the vender- if my version is screwed up, can I not fix it myself? ) Thanks again C

    Whatever that module outputs, it is very unlikely that this is a comprehensive list of all modules. But if that is so, then your installation of Perl lacks many modules shipped with a standard Perl, and you should complain to your package or OS maintainer (commonly called "vendor") that they should fix their distribution.

    If you're going the route of compiling and installing your own Perl, make sure not to install it over the system Perl. The best way is to not run anything as the superuser. If you install your own version of Perl, you get all those modules and also get full control over what goes where.

    It is very difficult to read your posts. Please read Writeup Formatting Tips, then update your posts to add "code" tags around your code and error messages.
