Re: modules
Message ID:
Does it matter what version of perl is currently running (I am on 5.61), and 
are there any concerns on using the automatic installation process against a 
production environment?  Does the automatic process pick the right version 
of the module based on what is already installed?

$perl -MCPAN -e autobundle
This will first search for all installed module. Then it will search the
cpan archive for updates...
Perhaps you need answere a few question if this is the very first time you
connect to CPAN. But it's easy. Just do it:-)

$perl -e MCPAN -e 'install MODUL_NAME::xxx'

this will search the archive after module namedd MODUL_NAME::xxx and
install it. If this module need other modules to work ok. The installation
prossess will automatic fix this.
