Update2:I see I can download XML-LibXSLT-1.57.tar.gz *manually* from http://search.cpan.org/~msergeant/XML-LibXSLT-1.57/LibXSLT.pm. Is this the way to go? If so, what do I do with it? It unzips to a tarball, which "untars" to a load of files...am I supposed to compile this stuff? Thanks, J
To 'install from source' the typical steps are unpack, cd into the newly created directory, then:
$ perl Makefile.PL (or Build.PL)
$ make test
$ make install
However, I would continue trying to get cpan to work instead. Once you get cpan working, you can just type: cpan Some::Module.
