There are a couple of considerations:
  • What type of access do you have on that host system?
    If you have ssh or telnet access your life has become easier.
  • If you have access to a c compiler and a make utility on that system you're fine, too.

If you are on a UN*X-like system you can do:
perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=~/private_modules make make test make install
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:

use lib "~/my_private_modules_first"; print join ":", @INC;
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 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.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
