I have a Debian 3.0 Linux box with perl 5.6.1 installed. I would like to upgrade to 5.8.0 because I need a mod called Tie::File, and this mod is preinstalled with 5.8.0. I have tried to install Tie::file on my 5.6.1 but I run into dependencies problems. Is there a way to install perl mods, or install 5.8.0 with apt-get?

you should install this using cpan...

just type cpan at the prompt and the first time start manual configuration.

When you have configured it, start cpan again (say no for manual configuration this time)
and type "get Tie::File" at the prompt...

to leave the cpan shell, just type "quit"

Hope this helps,
