Chapter 15. Perl Modules > Installing Modules

15.2. Installing Modules

When you want to install a module you don't have, sometimes you can simply download the distribution, unpack it, and run a series of commands from the shell. Check for a README or INSTALL file that gives you more information. If the module uses MakeMaker,[†] the sequence will be something like this:

[†] That's the Perl module ExtUtils::MakeMaker, which comes with Perl. It handles all of the stuff to create the file that will have the installation instructions appropriate for your system and installation of Perl.

    $ perl Makefile.PL
    $ make install
