in thread Generating csv file.

In the case of Text::Csv you can certainly copy the source code provided you clearly attribute its original source and licensing terms on the copied file. - it is licensed under the same terms as perl. From the GPL

You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this General Public License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this General Public License along with the Program. You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy.

However, I'd be cautious, however, generalizing that to all CPAN modules. There are quite a number of licensing models for CPAN modules. Some, for example, do not allow commercial use. So as a general rule, one should always check the licensing before copying, and sometimes even using a CPAN module.

    So if the script is distributed, it needs to a GPL license. It doesn't force one to start distributing the script, so you're the OP is in the clear if it's for internal use.
