in reply to CPAN/MD5 Problem

This could be caused by competing installs of perl on the same machine, although you'd think that would fall over on your "use Digest::MD5" statement.

First thing to check is perl -V and @INC to ensure that the perl you think you're using and the perl your scripts think they're using match-- more to the point: that they have the same lib(rary) tree. If the scripts have #!/usr/bin/local/perl and your path (which would affect perl -V and perl -MCPAN -e "shell") has /usr/bin before /usr/local/bin, you might be installing CPAN modules into a different lib tree than the script's perl is checking for.

[shmem]: wait, what? you want that person to read the documentation for you?
[Lady_Aleena]: I might have to go with options instead of a straight list.
[Discipulus]: if more than 3 go for named variables LA
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, it is at 2 now, but with what I am thinking about, it could go to 3. However, only 1 is needed. The second and third are optional.
[shmem]: straight list or named parameters - that depends on whether (and how many) optional arguments you have
[Discipulus]: if so a plain list is ok, imho
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I already have the plugin installed, just not active.
[shmem]: if you have 1 optional argument, place that at the end of the list. If you have more, go for named parameters.
[Lady_Aleena]: 1 manditory, 2 optional.
[Discipulus]: my ($need,$opta,$optb ) = @_; .. if $opta..
