in reply to Yes, even you can use CPAN

Yesterday I wanted to install Config::General on a system at work. But the admins in their wisdom removed (or did not install) ExtUtils::MakeMaker. When I looked at MakeMaker's source I was a bit astonished to see use ExtUtils::MakeMaker in it, but nevertheless gave it a try and it worked.

So for future reference (of myself and others) here is what I did, after downloading the source and unpacking it in my home directory to get my modules up:

cd ExtUtils-MakeMaker-7.04/ perl Makefile.PL INSTALL_BASE=/opt/sw/perl make make install cd ../Config-General-2.56 export PERL5LIB=/opt/sw/perl/lib/perl5/ perl Makefile.PL INSTALL_BASE=/opt/sw/perl make make install perl -MConfig::General -e 42

The last step was to verify it worked.
