in reply to Installing Modules on a Standalone

Hi. There are some modules which try to connect to the Internet to download other modules. I don't know if that is the case.

If not, the usual procedure would be download the tarballs for those two modules and try to install them using the usual way:

tar zxvf module.tar.gz cd module perl Makefile.PL make make install
When you run perl Makefile.PL you can get dependencies missing (in which case you need to download a new tarball) or (if the module tries to connect to the internet) you need to look at the Makefile.PL code and check what it tries to download.

Hope this helps.

    I'm on a Windows machine. Does that make any difference? The most I can do through the command prompt is run DOS shell commands (don't think the TAR command works).
      Well, yes. I suppose you have the perl command. So, you unrar the file (or unzip, or extract someway), run the perl Makefile.PL. Then you need a make command. I think there are some freely available make commands for DOS. Something like nmake, if I am not wrong.

      Hope this helps.
