These are of course something I forgot to say, this is where *I* have *my* 
libraries. Remove them (or change them). There is also some other things to 
consider, please read the updated webpage.

Don't know. I mostly use cpan or linux-rpms. See further down to explanation.

Crash course in perl modules (on unix/linux):
This is where to go for packages: cpan.org
You can either install them as explained at cpan.org or use the cpan or 
cpanplus package. Try executing 'cpanp' or 'cpan' in a terminal. If you have 
never used them before, I recommend cpanplus. It usually installs with your 
standard linux repository or equivalent (yum,apt,rpm,etc.). Try googling if 
Your OS's repository might also have a lot of modules, try searching there as 
well. If you don't have root-access or want to install it on a windows/dos 
machine I recommend reading the install instructions at cpan.org.
