in the first place i installed using the specified version of the module.i use the steps as shown below to install.

perl Makefile.PL

make

make test

make install

recently i went to update by using the following method: cpan -i MIME::Base64

(can i know the above command i use is to install the latest version from CPAN right?)

    Yes, cpan -i MIME::Base64 will have installed the latest version from CPAN.

    If you download the version of the module you want, you should be able to remove the current (newer) version and install the older version with:

    perl Makefile.PL make make test make install UNINST=1

    Setting UNINST=1 when you install should cause the existing version to be uninstalled.
