Most wise and virile Monks, please show me the error of my ways.
I'm having what I think is a problem with modules (not) being installed but I'm not finding the one that's actually causing me grief. I've got the following:
my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new;
that generates the following:
Uncaught exception from user code:

I'm "blessed" with using at Perl 5.8.8 on a RHEL 5.8 server and getting up to current isn't a healthy option at this time. As far as WWW::Mechanize I've got the following on the machine:
$ ls -l /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/WWW
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jul 23 12:56 Mechanize

$ sudo perl -MCPAN -e shell
cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.9800)
Enter 'h' for help.
WWW::Mechanize is up to date (1.72).
cpan> install LWP::UserAgent
LWP::UserAgent is up to date (6.04).
cpan> install LWP::Protocol
LWP::Protocol is up to date (6.00).
cpan> install HTTP::Request
HTTP::Request is up to date (6.00).
cpan> install HTTP::Response
HTTP::Response is up to date (6.03).
I'm just not seeing what I'm missing in order to get just this little bit 'o code to run. Help me, Obi Perl - you're my only hope.
