ericjp has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

My company has a central server where all Perl libraries are mounted. This is a read-only file system, and they don't permit individuals to install new libraries. However, I am permitted to install libraries locally on my servers. This is what I want to do; however, I am unsure of how to do this properly. I am primarily a Perl coder - I have not done a lot of customizing the Perl environment, and this is the first time that I needed a library that was not on the server. The library I need to install is the Net::NetSend library. I have already downloaded the library from Can I get some advice on installing a library locally when all the others are installed somewhere on a remote file system? I have confirmed that my server has the other libraries I need: POSIX, IO and Socket. Thanks, EricJP
