That depends on the installation mechanism you are using. I dare say, that CPAN is most widely used, but ActivePerl, for instance, comes with its own module installation mechanism.

For CPAN use this module (see code snippet below):
http://search.cpan.org/~andk/CPAN-1.9304/lib/CPAN.pm

Note: Depending on the system and how perl is set up, the installation of perl modules might require root/admin-rights.
use CPAN;
CPAN::Shell->install("Acme::Meta");
CPAN::Shell->install("NWCLARK/Acme-Meta-0.02.tar.gz");

Then
