Perl 5 Module Installation

Perl5 modules can greatly extend the functionality of your Virtual Private Server's perl programming language interpreter. By using prepared modules written by others, instead of using your own code, you can save yourself both time and effort.


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.
