CPAN Module Installation

I have a redhat system where I need to install few cpan modules, but the port for downloading the modules from CPAN mirror site is closed.

Is there any alternative way I can install the cpan modules? Can I get these distributions from a server in which the modules are pre installed?

Please help.

Hi Sutapa
I assume these are perl modules.

Download the respective Perl Modules fron the CPAN Site and install using the README for each module.

Hello,

Since you cannot use a simple method to reach CPAN like:

perl -MCPAN -e 'install Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::Pyzor'

... the next simplest process is
to download the modules from the Perl site
and install manually. Typical process once
you cd into the top-level directory of the
module:

perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
make install

Re: CPAN Module Installation

Hi,

I wonder it's valid to configure other CPAN mirror sites through the CPAN shell.

Please refer to the "Reconfiguring CPAN" section in detail. http://sial.org/howto/perl/life-with-cpan/

Best Regards,
