Normally for unix, sh configure -PREFIX=lib where lib is your local lib folder will work. Try that with use lib and see if it works right away (read the README and INSTALL documents). Berkeley make or else nmake on windows.

But things have gone badly in the past, and so I sometimes have ended up making a folder for the module namespace called by the same name next to the script. So DBD::Mysql would become folder DBD, and or whatever binary files you get after compiling would get unceremoniously dumped in that folder. Then adding -IDBD to the shebang line in your script often works.

This breaks if the server OS gets updated, which has happened to me in the past.

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.
