in reply to Installing Modules

I second (third?) the previous comments. If you're upon Ubuntu you shouldn't install modules via CPAN, as there will be confusion sooner or later.

However all is not lost - if there is a module you wish to you which isn't availalbe as .deb you can create it, using dh-make-perl.

See this article I wrote on the subject a while back.

[erix]: there used to be the 'razing' of towns and citoes but that now means something else in Germany (rasen=driving too fast)
[erix]: sleighting, I imagine 'Schlechten' will be a german word too - probably with same meaning as in dutch (breaking down, making useless a castle / defensive structure )
