DO Perl XAMPP Linux have modules already?

Postby irjohn » 03. May 2009 01:11

I am new in programming and I have some problem in installing modules in perl. I read the packages of XAMPP and I saw perl included to it. I would like to know if the Perl in Xampp Linux have modules already installed like Net::FTP, DBD::MySQL, and others.

What command should I used in order for me to execute the Perl.

I installed XAMPP in my windows Vista OS plus the Perl Adds-on and I didn't encountered any problem. The site also provide what modules do the adds-on have. http://www.apachefriends.org/winxampp/perl-info.html

XAMPP is an awesome LAMP package for beginners like me because everything is in the package. It is easy to install and use. I thank the team of XAMPP for it. I also hope that someone could help me in my inquiry. Thanks again.

Thank you very much Wiedmann.

To be specific to my problem, how to install modules in XAMPP Linux Perl? I need to install and use DBD::MySQL and NET::FTP as part of the exercises of the reference book that I have. Since I am using XAMPP Linux, I have to adjust in the procedure in http://www.cpan.org/modules/INSTALL.html which is dependent to the Perl bundle in many Linux distribution.

how to install modules in XAMPP Linux Perl?

http://www.cpan.org/misc/cpan-faq.html#How_install_Perl_modules


I need to install and use DBD::MySQL

http://search.cpan.org/~capttofu/DBD-mysql-4.011/lib/DBD/mysql.pm#INSTALLATION

(If DBD::MySQL is not already installed, you must first install the XAMPP devel package.)


and NET::FTP

http://cpansearch.perl.org/src/GBARR/libnet-1.22/README


BTW:
I would like to know if the Perl in Xampp Linux have modules already installed like Net::FTP, DBD::MySQL, and others.

I don't know which modules are already installed in XAMPP for Linux.
