Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hello, I have 2 questions that I need help with please. I will admit that I am relatively new to perl.
I am using perl on a linux red-hat machine, I am renting space on the webserver so I only have telnet access to the machine.
1) how do I install perl modules on this machine (I can install them on my pc, but I only have telnet and ftp to the webserver, and not root privelege)?
2) when I try to execute perl scripts without using the format 'perl $0' I get I get a 'command not found' message. I know that I need to set an environment variable in my .bashrc file so that it knows what to do with .pl files, but I don't know the command/format. Please help.
