Request Tracker and HTML::FormatText - PERL Beginners

Hello all, We are in the process of installing Request Tracker ( http://www.bestpractical.com/rt/ -- rt.3.0.11 ) on a Fedora box and are running into an issue with installing the CPAN module HTML::FormatText. RT requires it, yet CPAN no longer has it. A google search find some in cache, but then going to those pages produces nothing. Any thoughts on how to get HTML::FormatText? Regards, - Robert...

    Hello all,

    We are in the process of installing Request Tracker (
    http://www.bestpractical.com/rt/ -- rt.3.0.11 ) on a Fedora box and are
    running into an issue with installing the CPAN module HTML::FormatText.
    RT requires it, yet CPAN no longer has it.

    A google search find some in cache, but then going to those pages
    produces nothing.

    Any thoughts on how to get HTML::FormatText?

    Look in search.cpan.org.
    Sources are found at
    http://search.cpan.org/src/GAAS/HTML-Format-1.23/lib/HTML/FormatText.pm

    Thanks. I looked for that tar file and couldn't find one. So, I used
    a wget to download the module:

    wget -m -nH -np
    http://search.cpan.org/src/GAAS/HTML-Format-1.23/lib/HTML/FormatText.pm

    and removed the index.html files:

    find src/GAAS/ -name 'index.html*' | xargs rm

    From then on it was the normal: perl Makefile.pl, make, make test, make
    install.

    Two questions:
    - how did you find the file?
    - is there a tarball of the same?

    Again, thanks.

    The usual way to install modules is to run 'cpan':

    [rootnogad root]# cpan
    cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.76)
    ReadLine support enabled

    cpan>install Your::Module:Here
    ..
    ..
    (dowloads the module, builds, tests and installs it)
    ..
    ..
    ..
    cpan> quit



    You can look for a module using 'i /text/' and cpan will show you anything
    it matches 'text'. '?' will provide you help.
    If it does not work you can always go to cpan.org and look at all the
    modules there waiting to be picked up.

    Going to cpan.org gives me the same results, i.e. only
    HTML::FormatText::WithLinks

    I tried at first with cpan and got the same result as you, don't know
    why.
    But if you go to CPAN search (seach.cpan.org) and look for
    HTML::FormatText in 'modules' you can find it. Try
    http://search.cpan.org/search?query=HTML%3A%3AFormatText&mode=module

    Too weird. I tried this the other day and got nothing.

    http://search.cpan.org/search?query=HTML%3A%3AFormatText&mode=all

    When I tried it today, it worked. Probably just a glitch in the
    Matrix. :)

    Muchos gracias por su ayuda, Roberto.
