perl looks for modules in the directories defined in INC so just check that your own running directory is there, if not, add it with a PUSH.

'.' is usually the last element of @INC, if not, you should push it at compile time in a BEGIN sub, or with use lib
(But some modules could require root or make to install, depending on what they do)

please tell me suppose I have a cgi.pm or parse.pm or whatever.pm -- all I have to do is to move/copy it to my directory and point @INC to that directory  -- IS THAT ALL ?

IS there no need to run a "make" or a make "install" ?

CGI.pm can just be copied to your directory.
I'm not sure what parse.pm or whatever.pm are, or whether or not they may depend on other modules that may require making.
