Can Someone help a Perl Dummy?
Posted on 2003-02-25
You'll have to excue my total ignorance when it comes to Perl, I know nothing.
I have a perl script that one of our remote programmers developed, unfortunately he is so unbelievably wrapped up in projects that he can't devote all of his time to my site.
Anyway, this script is supposed to take text files and parse them out into an XML template. When I run the script it simply moves the file to the destination folder and makes no changes to it.
Looking at the code, I see that there are two modules that I don't think I have. One is HTML::Entities and the other is Time::Local. I found some info on them at perldoc.com but it was kinda greek to me.
I'm using ActivePerl 5.80 and I can't seem to find those modules when I do a search in ppm.
Can someone explain to me what those modules do and where I can actually find them?
