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 not. 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. -- Bjørge Solli - Office:+47 55205847 cellph.:+47 91614343 Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center - Bergen, Norway http://www.nersc.no Reception: +47 55205800 Dept.: Mohn-Sverdrup Center for Global Ocean Studies and Operational Oceanography
