in thread fetching and storing data from web.

I don't know how to install with force. The readme which comes with strawberry says that at command prompt I should type 'cpan ModuleName' to insatll a CPAN module.

    try cpan -h for help. -f forces an install despite test failures (and maybe in a few other situations). If you aren't from a *nix background and aren't wedded to Strawberry for some reason I suggest you consider switching to ActiveState Perl to get a somewhat easier module install process. You can still use cpan if need be, but most common modules are more easily installed with ActiveState's ppm.

    True laziness is hard work
