in reply to Modules on a Unix server

Rather than your path being wrong, it may be that the LWP module has not been installed on your particular Solaris server.

/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/ is the default location for Perl modules on a staging Solaris server I use. This I found by using telnet and typing 'perl -V' for compile and path information.

On this particular system by poking around I find the path /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0/LWP which, among other modules, contains Simple.pm.

In several cases I have had to ask the tech support people on these particular C&W Solaris systems to install new modules from CPAN, which they in general have been very helpful in doing.

Depending on your setup, if the system administrator will not intall the module in a central Perl library, you may be able to install it in one of the local directories in your web directories.

Live in the moment
