  • Install Perl
    • Check to see if perl is already installed:
      yum list perl
    • If needed, install perl:
      yum install perl
  • Install other needed modules and packages
    Note

    Note that cpan is an online repository for perl modules and that installing modules from it may occasionally fail due to failed tests. In these situations, you can pass a flag to the cpan command that forces the installation. Your command should then look like cpan -fi module. Note when you do this so that you can be on the lookout for any issues that may arise as a result of these potentially buggy perl modules. You can update the perl modules when a new version is released by running the install command again. Many modules will require dependency modules so make sure to answer yes to the prompts to include them in the build/install process.
