Pre-Packaged Perl Modules

We have created an easy way for you to install the most commonly requested Perl5 modules on your Virtual Server. This group of modules include:
  • perl-lwp - perl-lwp contains the LWP (Library for WWW access in Perl) modules as well as their dependencies. Note that Bundle::libnet (perl-libnet below) is required for optimal performance.
  • perl-mysql - perl-mysql contains the DBD::mysql database driver for Perl's DBI module (which must be installed separately, using vcpan).
  • perl-pg - perl-pg contains Pg and DBD::Pg, two Perl5 modules built to access PostgreSQL databases. DBD::Pg is for use with Perl's DBI module (which you must install separately) while Pg is for standalone access to Postgres.
  • perl-msql (FreeBSD only) - perl-msql includes all the necessary Perl libraries to talk to an mSQL database via Perl's DBI module (which must be installed separately, using vcpan).
  • perl-dbd_oracle (Solaris only) - perl-dbd_oracle includes all the necessary Perl libraries to talk to an Oracle database.
  • perl-libnet - This is a collection of Perl5 modules which provides a simple and consistent programming interface (API) to the client side of various protocols used in the internet community.
  • perl-gd - This is an autoloadable interface module for libgd, a popular library for creating and manipulating PNG files. With this library you can create PNG images on the fly or modify existing files.
  • perl-xml_parser - XML::Parser is an XML parser written in Perl. (It makes use of Expat, so Expat must be installed on your server if you're going to use XML::Parser. Use vinstall expat.)

Installation
To install any of the perl modules listed above, connect to your server via Telnet or SSH and execute the following command.:
    % vinstall MODULE-NAME

Perl Documentation

The perldoc utility, which you can use to view Perl5 module documentation, on your Virtual Server, links in a variety of required terminal macro definitions as well as a bunch of groff/troff/nroff files required for proper man (manual) page formatting.
    % vinstall perldoc
Once installed, you may run the following command to access documentation for your favorite Perl5 module. Substitute your favorite Perl5 module name for Module::Favorite below.
    % virtual perldoc Module::Favorite
