Hi,

I am very new to perl..I want to install a cpan perl module OLE-Storage_Lite-0.19 in a linux machine. The installation instructions does not specify any thing about the @INC path. Will the make file find the proper directory by itself or do we have to explicitely mention it?

INSTALLATION directions are given as
--------------------------------------
perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
make install # You may need to be root
make clean # or make realclean

Also when i run the following command there are a lot of paths given as the output.
So if we have to explicitely mention the @INC during the installation of the module, which path should i give..?

[user@linux-machine OLE-Storage_Lite-0.19]$ perl -e "print qq(@INC)" 
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi 
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0 
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0 .

Pls guide me..

Perl module installation is very simple.

perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
make install # You may need to be root
make clean # or make realclean

navigate to the folder you saved the downloaded tar. just extract it.

using your CMD line. change to SU mode.
Run the above snippet from the CMD in su mode.
JOB DONE.! :)

Start using your module brother.
