jesuashok has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

cool monks,

I was going through Re^3: SCP connection. I just used the command given there as follows :-

C:\\Perl>perl -MCPAN -e 'shell' install Net::SCP C:\\Perl>perl -MCPAN -e 'shell' install Blah::Blah::Blah
I did not get any message after executing that. is there something wrong in the statement which I executed ?

Generally I use ppm to install perl modules in windows. In curiosity I tried the above commands.

Update:use both the commmands literally.

    In unix, no message means no error. Can you now use the module? If so, nothing's wrong.

    Anytime I've installed modules on a Win32 system (not using PPM), I've done the following:

    perl -MCPAN -e"install Blah::Blah"
    or open a shell session via:
    perl -MCPAN -eshell

    Installing via CPAN on a Win32 system works great if you're using Strawberry Perl. You can get a copy from http://vanillaperl.com/. You can also read about it at the win32.perl.org wiki.
