CPAN module install

CPAN module install

CPAN module install

I have tried to install a module into Net. it was TFTP for ftp(get put etc). When i ran make install it put it in its own directory in my /usr/local/bin but said it was placed into /user/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/sun4-solaris/auto/Net/TFTP/.packlist.  I have never installed an extra module but I did follow instructions in the Cookbook. What do I do now?

RE: CPAN module install

I'm not familiar with this particular module, but I've used many other modules in the past, and the principles are the same.

Because you've had to compile some code to native binaries as part of making the module, the "make install" places the module into the "site_perl" directory.  This is to help you if you have multiple perl installations, all sharing a common NFS mounted "lib/perl5" directory.  You won't try to run, say, a Solaris module under SCO Unixware.

So, the module should now be available for you to use.  Try running "perldoc Net::TFTP" to view the on-line docs.  To use the module in your code simply insert a "use Net::TFTP" line near the beginning of your code.  Then follow the instructions provided with the module to actually use it.

Hope this helps.
