For the following line -

use Net::FTP;

I got a copiling error of cannot find Net/FTP in bla bla search directories.  I looked in the lib/, and found Net/ only has servent file referencing ftp, but not as an object.  I'm using UNIX/Salarias.  My real purpose is to run this pl script from a HTML file residng on Windows enviornment.  What's the perl compiler and pm's that I need?

Thanks

what is the exact error??

you can get the various modules you need from CPAN's 1410 modules distributions at..

http://www.cpan.org/modules/01modules.index.html

Net::FTP file name is libnet-1.0703.tar.gz

perl's CPAN module supposed to handle download/install automatically.


shell/prompt# perl -mCPAN -e shell [enter]
at CPAN prompt, you can just type  'install Net::FTP'. This will download, compile and install Net::FTP module or any module for that matter. For first time run, it will ask a few questions to set things up.

be wary about security, etc...though
