Re: Off topic question
Message ID:
Use the PREFIX parameter to tell Perl where to install a module like so:

% perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/home/your/private/dir
% make
% make install

Now tell Perl where to look for your privately installed modules like so:

use lib '/home/your/private/dir';

Hope this helps.
