Use the Perl Modules interface to manage collections of functions that allow you to perform tasks in Perl. You must install a Perl module before you can use it in a Perl program.


Perl modules are software components in the Perl language. This interface allows you to search for and install Perl modules from the CPAN repository to your website.

Note: You must install Perl modules before you can use them inside of a Perl program.

Install Perl modules

Note: If you know the name of the desired module, enter it in the Install a Module text box and click Install Now.

Perform one of the following actions to find the desired module and install it:

  • Enter a search term in the Search text box and click Go. You will see modules that are specific to that search term.
  • Click Show Available Modules to see a list of available Perl modules from CPAN.

Note: Every module in the CPAN repository will not display.
