Re: installing local modulesby janx (Monk)

There are a couple of considerations:
If you are on a UN*X-like system you can do:
This will install the module in question into the private_modules directory in your home directory.
Note that this is not guaranteed to work with all modules. See ExtUtils::MakeMaker for details.
In general you can safely install your private modules into your own directory and let perl look for packages in there first by doing:
Perl has the list of directories to search stored in its @INC array, so you might want to play with that.
Of course check out lib.pm also ;-).
If you do not have direct access to the server, things get a bit more difficult, as you will have to prepare the modules by yourself on your local system first, and then upload them to the right directory on your server.
