I have good news and bad news now :-)
The good news is that after searching at PerlMonks again and studying e.g. Adding modules to a PC manually and ActiveState Module Install Without PPM and after that http://docs.activestate.com/activeperl/5.12/faq/ActivePerl-faq2.html#ppmx_files - since there are ppd- and ppmx-files - I was able at last to install extra modules in my ActivePerl distribution at work without administrator authority and without communication with the IT department.
This is really good news since this extends my options in programming (and - first of all - learning) Perl.

Now the bad news. I installed Chart::Gnuplot and faced the same problems which were already described at Chart::Gnuplot and Windows XP. Since my script runs ok now - thanks to you guys - I am going to keep using / developing it at least by now.

    [james28909]: it is not an absolute date like "27" or "31". sometimes it is like wednesday or friday
    [james28909]: and i need to format those special instances into an absolute date instead of "yesterday"
    [stevieb]: ask a question on SoPW, and include at least a half-dozen examples of the input, and at least one example of expected output
    [davido]: Exactly: SoPW. This isn't going to be solved easily in the CB.
    [james28909]: in need "yesterday" and so on, to be absolute like "1" or "31"
    [stevieb]: ...and throw some of your existing code into the equation as well, just so readers know you've given a try at it ;)
    [james28909]: ok
    [stevieb]: davido thanks for the link ;) I was being the typical lazy
    [davido]: date parsing is hard. The more examples you can provide of the input (within reason) and expected output, the better.
    [stevieb]: agreed. That's why I said at least a half-dozen. If enough of the different formats are present, the date/time folk may not have to request more. If they do, then at least there was a decent base to start with
