If you're on a windows machine, I'm sure there is a way to install CPAN stuff in your own "home" space and adjust your shell environment so that perl knows to look there for modules, but I don't know the details (I'm not a windows user, thankfully).

If you're on linux or unix, you just need to make sure that your home directory contains subdirectories called "bin", "lib" and "lib/perl5". Then, run:

perl -MCPAN -e shell
You'll probably go through a long "first-time start-up" config dialog, in which all the "default" answers are the right answers. Then you'll see a prompt for action:
cpan>
Once you see that, just type something like this (supposing that your home directory is called "renovatio"):
install Statistics::R PREFIX=/home/renovatio
Any executables being installed by the module will be placed in your ~/bin directory; various module files will be placed into ~/lib/perl5/...

If you have specific problems with installing a module, you can use your shell to go into ~/.cpan/build/{Module-Package-Name}, and try reading the README and/or INSTALL files (if any), and manually doing the sequence:

perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/home/renovatio make make test make install
If you get errors that you can't understand, and the module docs don't help, try posting some of the details here. Good luck!

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
