in thread Loading Local Modules

Yeah this is what i've tried to do, but it then seems to ask for because it obvioyusly uses it. So I installed that as well, then it complained about some problem with XML::Parser::Expat, so I installed that as well. Then it complained about.

Can't locate object method "bootstrap" via package "XML::Parser::Expat +" at lib/XML/Parser/ line 29

So I started to wonder if this would ever end...

    Did you read the README for XML::Parser? You have to install expat. An alternative is to install XML::SAX, which will install XML::SAX::PurePerl, which will be used by XML::Simple. This way you don't have to install an external library.

    You should also install CPANPLUS, that will make installing modules easier (although it will not solve the fact that you have to install expat separately in this case).

    CPANPLUS will also let you write a bundle file for your configuration, or just let you automagically install the needed modules, see Perl Module administration with CPANPLUS.

    Don't give up, it might be a pain in the short term, but eventually it will save you tons of time, as you will then be able to use all of CPAN and not just the very limited subset included in the core.
