stevenrh has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
this may be silly, but here's my issue:
I need the module 'GDBM_File' for a script somebody wrote. Hwever, the script doews not find the module. This module is supposed come with Perl-5-8-6 (I have that installed). Any attempt to get said module results in attempting to download perl all over again.
I wonder if there is a way to use the source posted in CPAN?? I can't seem to find any docs on how to install the module from source.
Any help would be appreciated.
----Here is the std output-----
Can't locate GDBM_File.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.6/mach /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.6 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.6/BSDPAN /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.6/mach /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.6 .) at ./abc123.pl line 47.
I found the module. I upgraded my perl from the ports collection. Now I'm looking into putting this path in the right place to let perl find it!
