moadeep has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Firstly, I apologise if this question is very basic as I am new to perl.
We have a small linux network (15 users) running red hat linux. We have started dabbling in perl. A few users, myself included, have superuser privileges and are in the process of translating and updating some of our older csh scripts to perl. To do so we have had to install quite a few modules through CPAN. Once the scripts are written we place them in a folder that is accessible to all users in our network so that they can execute them when required. However, these users haven't yet installed the required perl modules.
I guess my question is, how can I or others with root privileges ensure that the perl modules installed for all other users on all computers are consistent. Can this be done in a simple script rather than physically going to each computer and installing the modules by brute force?
