    I am a total newbie to Perl coming from PHP.
    I want to know how do I install DBI module (or any other modules into my Perl installation). I am on Linux with Perl 5 installed from RPM.

    Pls help me as to how to go about it.
    I hope m perl experience is good, now that I have jumped into it. It seems to be a culture - this PERL movement.

    Thanks in advance

    Try 'ppm install DBI' or whatever module you like.

    You can find many of the more commonly used modules in .rpm format (including DBI). If you want to install from the source, however, you can do "perl -MCPAN -e 'install (module-name)'" from the command line. For example, to install DBI you would do: perl -MCPAN -e 'install DBI'. Or you can always download the modules from the CPAN and compile them yourself. Just go to www.perl.com and follow the links to the CPAN to get to the modules.
