I suppose you are using ActiveState Perl. You can find modules for this Perl at

http://www.ActiveState.com/packages/zips/

And here is how you install a module:

1. Download the desired module from the web (it's a zip-file)

2. un-zip it to any directory on your harddisk

3. open a dos box and go to that directory

4. type "dir" and look for a file that has the ending .ppd (for example TimeHires.ppd)

5. enter "ppm install TimeHires.ppd" (of course using the filename you found...)

....and finished!
