    Unfortunately, I do not have root permissions to write to the standard perl path used by mycorp. Hence, i see this error at the end:
    /usr/bin/make test -- OK Running make install !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! +!! ERROR: Can't create '/usr/bin' Do not have write permissions on '/usr/bin' !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! +!! at -e line 1 make: *** [pure_perl_install] Error 255 /usr/bin/make install -- NOT OK You may have to su to root to install the package

      Try this:

      $ cpan cpan>look ExtUtils::MakeMaker [/path/to/the/module/build/directory]#

      If the path to the build directory is not under your user directory, then you will have to download the CPAN tar.gz file into a directory and unpack it. Then:

      $ cd /path/to/the/module/build/directory $ perl Makefile.PL $ make $ make test $ make install

      I'm not an expert with CPAN or modules, so I don't know if this will work for you. Good luck.
