hi darksen,

depending on your os version, you may try a different thing.  I had a win2k box, what I can suggest would be.

1.  try type "perldoc ole::storage"
2.  try to seach the folder c:\perl\lib or c:\perl\site\lib

the rude way in unix would try to search for the file.

try to do "find / -name storage.pm -print" while running as root.  This would search all filesystem for the file.

Hi darksen,

Samri's comment is good, but if you have a few programs / files to search for, using "locate" (if your Linux/Unix installation comes with it) would be better since it is faster.

To do this, type "locate -u" to refresh the locate database.
Then type "locate storage.pm" to search for the file.
