I installed mytop but it won't run. It gives me the following error:

[root@daniweb root]# mytop
Can't locate Term/ReadKey.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at /usr/bin/mytop line 165.
[root@daniweb root]#

Apparently I don't have ReadKey installed? How can I get it? How difficult is it to install? Baby steps please! Thanks!

In addition to installing Term::ReadKey, how can I install Term:ANSIColor? Would I be able to see the color logged in remotely via SSH? (as the machine is quite a few states away from me!)

(suggestion)You need to install the missing module. Become root and type

perl -MCPAN -e 'install Term::ReadKey'

Without this module Perl has no mechanism to intercept the arrow key
presses and interpret them as requests to traverse the command line history.

I don't need to download this module from anywhere first? Just install it into Perl?

(suggestion)Let's make certain whether you have that module or not. Send the output of:

perl -MTerm::ReadKey -e 0
perl -dle 'print $INC{"Term/ReadKey.pm"}' # Then type 'c'
perl -MCPAN -le 'print $INC{"Term/ReadKey.pm"}'

Apparently I don't have ReadKey installed? How can I get it?

WHEN I FOUND THIS LINK I RAN ACROSS THIS STATEMENT
[quote=THE RUSSIAN First I installed Readline from(the link above)
Then ReadKey didn't work not yet (Error message after instaling) inspite
of ReadKey.pm has been in the Lib path ($INC). But the history worked
already.
To get rid of the ReadLine Error message I reinstalled Term::ReadKey
interactive via "perl -MCPAN -e shell". Now it works perfect! quote

I had to downloaded Term::ReadKey from the CPAN website. I untarred, compiled, and installed, and all works :)

Thank you! :-D
