Trying to load some PERL Modules on a new server we inherited, but one of them says I don't have the right compiler. Search for truth and knowledge on internet leads me to believe that whatever compiler I use for Perl Modules (i.e. gcc) needs to be the same compiler used to load Perl. If that is correct, how do I know which compiler was used for Perl itself?
# echo $CC
gives me nothing in return
Just FYI, I am unable to auto-load the modules through CPAN because the server is behind several firewalls and I am pretty sure CorpSec has thrown in a DeathStar in there somewhere (little bit of levity there). So I have to download the modules' zipped tarballs and then transfer to the server and unzip, untar, Makefile.pl, etc etc. The procedure I am using was found on the web. Is there a hard and fast way to manually install modules?
