perl package

Postby libix » 2006-06-08 17:09

I am new to debian. I have written a program in perl, which uses the package, Text::CSV::Simple. I tried to install this package thru package manager and apt-get, but either ways, I get the message that it doesnt exist. How can I install it?

Somebody advised me on makefile ... but I dont know how to do this. Please help.

Use the CPAN system - just run "cpan" and use that to download and install it.

Better yet, use dh-make-perl which automagically makes a .deb out of CPAN modules.

Many of the popular modules are already a part of the debian distribution, but their' names can be tricky. They follow the same naming scheme though, for example, the CPAN module Class::Accessor, is named libclass-accessor-perl.

Good luck!
