Trying to install libnet-1.0502 on a Solaris 2.4 system on a Sun Sparc IPC.
Rec'd message indicating a missing module - blib.pm .
Unable to locate via search engines - anyone know where I may get this piece of the puzzle.

Thanks for any assistance -

blib.pm should have been installed in /usr/local/lib/perl5 or whatever your perl library directory is, during the initial perl install.

here it is otherwise.

--------------------------------------------------------------------
package blib;
 
=head1 NAME
 
blib - Use MakeMaker's uninstalled version of a package
 
=head1 SYNOPSIS
 
 perl -Mblib script [args...]
 
 perl -Mblib=dir script [args...]
 
=head1 DESCRIPTION
 
Looks for MakeMaker-like I<'blib'> directory structure starting in
I<dir> (or current directory) and working back up to five levels of '..'.
 
Intended for use on command line with B<-M> option as a way of testing
arbitary scripts against an uninstalled version of a package.
 
However it is possible to :
 
 use blib;
 or
 use blib '..';
 
etc. if you really must.
 
=head1 BUGS
 
Pollutes global name space for development only task.

sub import
{
 my $package = shift;
 my $dir = getcwd;
 if (@_)
  {
   print join(',',@_),"\n";
   $dir = shift;
   $dir =~ s/blib$//;
   $dir =~ s,/+$,,;
   $dir = '.' unless ($dir);
   die "$dir is not a directory\n" unless (-d $dir);
  }
 my $i   = 5;
 while ($i--)
  {
   my $blib = "${dir}/blib";
   if (-d $blib && -d "$blib/arch" && -d "$blib/lib")
    {
     unshift(@INC,"$blib/arch","$blib/lib");
     warn "Using $blib\n";
     return;
    }
   $dir .= "/..";
  }
 die "Cannot find blib even in $dir\n";
}
 
1;

Thank you for your help. This was not included in the release of Perl 5.003 installed upon my systems. I appreciate your sending me a copy.
