in reply to Perl on a cluster

Yeah, you really need to give more information about how your cluster is set up - hard to help you without more details.

As zejames already said, you basically have 2 options - install your modules and script(s) on each node of the cluster individually, or install perl itself, the modules, and your script(s) on a partition that is shared (nfs?) among all the cluster members. The kicker about installing all on a shared partition IIRC is that only one cluster member can have the shared partition mounted at one time.

Give more details about your setup and maybe we can help more.

    No, you can have several machines NFS mounting the same shared directory. In fact that makes administering things much easier as you can update on one box and everything will pick up the new version.
