in reply to Installing CPAN without root access

Hi,

the solution depends heavily on the question whether you want to stick to the system's perl installation or if you want a current Perl version too.

If you say: Hey, I start by own directory tree for modules why should I not also install a perl for my own, than have a look at http://perlbrew.pl/. (App::perlbrew)

If you say: No, please, I just want some modules on my own, than have a look at local::lib and for nice installation to App::cpanminus.

UPDATE: I forgot something. The local::lib thing is meanwhile integrated into the App::perlbrew. So you can think of the App::perlbrew way as a kind of superset.

    I tried installing App::perlbrew but I keep getting error with the curl command they have provided on the website that curl couldn't connect to host. Thanks for your help though

      but I keep getting error with the curl command they have provided on the website that curl couldn't connect to host.

      And then what happened?

      You probably have an HTTP proxy on your network. Set it in the http_proxy variable. Check the curl man page.
