> Hi friends,
me to install (1). When I try to use within my user, it says 'no
permission' for wrting.
so cannot use the module directly from net.
The normal installation procedure can be followed but you will need to
specify a prefix to install into, such as,
perl Makefile.pl PREFIX=/home/jay/perl5lib
Then in your scripts you would use,
use lib '/home/jay/perl5lib';
I assume you know how to download the source tar ball from CPAN over the
web and get it onto the machine yourself. Note that XML::Simple has at
least one dependency of a base XML module, the same procedure should
work for most of today's modules. Additionally some XML modules
(including potential dependencies of XML::Simple) rely on the expat c
libraries. I leave that as an exercise for the reader, though if the
reader gives it an honest go and gets stuck, give us a ring and we will
get it sorted....
