Trouble in installing Parse::DecDescent module.

Dear Expert,

In  order to use Spreadsheet-WriteExcel, I need to install Parse::DecDescent module. In its readme file, it tells how to install:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
INSTALLATION

    It's all pure Perl, so just put the .pm files in their appropriate
    local Perl subdirectories.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What is this local Perl subdirectories? I just put DecDescent.pm file in any one of these three directories
\usr\lib\perl5\site_perl\5.8\Spreadsheet\
\usr\lib\perl5\site_perl\5.8\Spreadsheet\WriteExcel
usr\lib\perl5\vendor_perl\5.8\
 it doesn't work for me.

I wrote a test.pl:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w

#use strict;
use Spreadsheet::WriteExcel;

 # Create a new Excel workbook
    my $workbook = Spreadsheet::WriteExcel->new("perl.xls");

    # Add a worksheet
    $worksheet = $workbook->add_worksheet();

    #  Add and define a format
    $format = $workbook->add_format(); # Add a format
    $format->set_bold();
    $format->set_color('red');
    $format->set_align('center');

    # Write a formatted and unformatted string, row and column notation.
    $col = $row = 0;
    $worksheet->write($row, $col, "Hi Excel!", $format);
    $worksheet->write(1,    $col, "Hi Excel!");

    # Write a number and a formula using A1 notation
    $worksheet->write('A3', 1.2345);
    $worksheet->write(3,    $col, "Excel!");
    $worksheet->write('A4', '=SIN(PI()/4)');

When I run test.pl, it always complaints:
The Parse::RecDescent module must be installed in order to write Excel formula.
So it seems that it can not find DecDescent.pm, where should DecDescent.pm be put?

Thanks.
