in thread Compile portable Perl program on Windows to run on UNIX

But I have no privilege to use internet on that server, am I able to install new module? Can you show me how to install module in a specific location? I follow tutorial on web but no luck.

    Did you actually read this post and the link provided before replying? If so what problems do you have, is there anything you don't understand? Unless you tell people what you are having problems with, repeated requests for help aren't going to do much good.

      I did read the post. But after I untar all things and attemp to install, I am stuck at "fetching with the LWP...", seem I am behind a firewall, I thought there is no need to use internet since I already downloaded the package.

        "I thought there is no need to use internet since I already downloaded the package."

        You haven't said which module you're trying to install. It doesn't look like you're using cpan to install modules. Perhaps you are missing a dependency. Ask your network/system admin if you are behind a firewall, perhaps they could add an exception or you could configure your machine to do so.

    There are links to eleventy million pages explaining how to install modules in your home dir here. Of them all, these days I recommend using local::lib. At least, I do on Unix. No idea how well it works on Windows.

    To install without internet access you'll need to get the distribution (the Some-Module-1.234.tar.gz) file or its contents onto the machine. Untar it, then ...

    cd Some-Module-1.234 cpan .

    Adjust as necessary for other CPAN clients. These days cpanminus is probably the best choice.

    Installing dependencies can be a gigantic pain in the arse if you don't have internet access (or you don't have a copy of the CPAN already on the target machine). If you have lots of dependencies, then I suggest that you build another machine similar to the target - same OS, same word length - which could be a virtual machine on your desktop which *does* have internet access, and build all your modules there. Once that's done, copy the results to the target machine and hope for the best.
