- Installing Modules
- Want to install a module such as Tk or GD? Need libnet so you can
use ActivePerl to check your email? Here's how it's done.
- PPM and Firewalls
- Are you having trouble installing modules from behind a firewall
through a proxy? This document shows how. It also tells how to
download packages directly via HTTP to store them in a local
repository, so you can use them on a machine with no internet
connection, or on networked machines without having to download
the modules for each install.

many Perl users have, and their answers. This FAQ is specifically

that comes with Perl, and is the official language reference
for the Perl language.

- ActivePerl comes with complete documentation for all of the modules
available. This section of the table of contents on the left shows
the modules available and currently installed in your ActivePerl
installation. Site specific libraries are included in this listing.

the help automatically gets updated and the new libraries are
added to this index.
