Hello my esteemed code-friends,

I am in need of some modules my host staff says it would be better if I install them in a personal lib directory, like this:

> 1. pick a location for your personally installed and created perl mo +dules > such as /home/username/perl > 2. build a module tree such as > /home/username/perl/ > Greg/ > XML/ > HTML/ > CGI/ > then in your code add a new path to @INC using the line: > use lib "/home/username/perl";
Isnīt this a dirty installation? I mean, just copying the .pm files to their tree? Here, at development, I always install modules through the PPM3 shell. Can I do that in this case too? How to specify to PPM3 that the specific target isnīt my host's central module repository?

Thanks a lot
