The following is a list of pre-packaged Perl5 Modules that can be installed on your Virtual Private Server.

  • 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-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.)


Do the following, depending on your Virtual Private Server O/S.
