modules can greatly extend the functionality of your Virtual Private Server's
perl programming language interpreter. By using prepared modules written

Various Perl modules are available using the following methods:
- Pre-Packaged Perl5 Modules - We have
created an easy, one-step way for you to install commonly requested
Perl5 modules on your Virtual Private Server.
- vcpan - If you require a module that is
not included in the Perl5 Standard Libraries or the pre-packaged distributions
above, you may be able use the vcpan utility to install it. The vcpan
utility is a wrapper around the perl5 -MCPAN -e shell command that automates
module download and installation.
- Install Perl5 Modules Yourself
- With a little work it is possible for you to install Perl5 modules
yourself locally on your Virtual Private Server.
