in reply to To install a module...

On my box - got root baby:
perl Makefile.PL make make test make install
And for those occasions when I'm far to impatient to wait for the sysadmin to install modules on boxes where I don't have root access:

[Discipulus]: ah ok, sounds reasonable; with no fear: Perl all life long
[ambrus]: Mind you, LaTeX is currently still useful for writing math paper or snippet content without styling in such a way that the
