What's the restriction on using modules?

To use sendmail, you do
open MAIL, "|/usr/lib/sendmail -t" or die;
print MAIL <<EOF;
To: some@address
From: someother@address
Subject: My subject
 
Body of the mail
EOF
 
close MAIL;

Open in new window

When you say you don't have permission to download, do you mean your company policy disallows it, or you are not connected to the Internet?
