local installation of moduleby belize (Deacon)
|on Aug 24, 2001 at 03:45 UTC||Need Help??|
belize has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I need to install Image:Size module in a local directory as I do not have access to root.
I do fine up to the point when I type in:
perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/u/mydir/perl
substituting the the path to the directory I want to install into for "/u/mydir/perl". I get an error:
sh: /u/mydir/perl: is a directory
and nothing else. All I really want to do is install the module in a local directory and then call it from a CGI that I am writing.
I've searched the site for "install module", but can not find any mention of hte error I get.
Am I missing something?
