V Newbie: Installing Perl modules - PERL Miscellaneous

I'm a v newbie who is trying to run the checklink thingy ([url]http://validator.w3.org/checklink[/url]) I've installed ActivePerl and example.pl ran ok. I'm trying to install the Perl modules needed by checklink. PPM starts up fine and I've downloaded to my root directory cgi.pm.txt. In PPM the command "install c:\cgi.pm.txt" gets the message "Searching for 'c:\cgi.pm.txt' returns no results. Try a broader search first." Don't understand. Help. I tried renaming cgi.pm.txt as cgi.pm and same result. Thanks for your time. -- keep :)ing - des fisher .... [url]www.NaTCH.co.uk[/url] last updated 23 June ....

    Default V Newbie: Installing Perl modules

    I'm a v newbie who is trying to run the checklink thingy
    ([url]http://validator.w3.org/checklink[/url])

    I've installed ActivePerl and example.pl ran ok. I'm trying to install the
    Perl modules needed by checklink.

    PPM starts up fine and I've downloaded to my root directory cgi.pm.txt.

    In PPM the command "install c:\cgi.pm.txt" gets the message "Searching for
    'c:\cgi.pm.txt' returns no results. Try a broader search first."
    Don't understand. Help.
    I tried renaming cgi.pm.txt as cgi.pm and same result.

    Thanks for your time.

    I think PPM installs things via .ppd files. It doesn't install .pm files
    directly.

    But CGI is part of core in ActivePerl so it should already be installed.

    Why did you do that'

    Of course. Why should PPM try to install a text file?

    Plus, Activeperl comes with the CGI module as standard.
    You don't need to install anything extra.

    That's not surprising.
