25 <!-- note for editors:
26 When testing the dependencies for a new/updated module, it is possible
27 to build the dependencies in a directory, then do DESTDIR installs.
28 For packages using Module::Build, supply \-\-destdir= (lower case!)
29 AFTER the command. Repeat as necessary. At any one time, ALL deps for
30 the module being tested need to be in the same DESTDIR - it may be
31 convenient to copy the contents, e.g.
32 cp -av MODULEA/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.xx.y/* BATCH1/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.xx.y/
33
34 And then to use these deps (plus what is already installed),
35 export PERL5LIB=/ab/path/to/BATCH1/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.xx.y
36
37 Please be aware that not all non-core prerequisite deps are necessarily
38 needed. If 'use Foo::Bar' appears in one of the main files in lib/ or blib/
39 it is assumed to be needed. But if it only gets used in tests (t/) then
40 please try without it to see if the tests can still pass. -->

42 <para>
43 The <application>Perl</application> module packages (also referred to as
44 Distributions, because each can contain multiple modules) add useful
45 objects to the <application>Perl</application> language. The packages
46 listed on this page are required or recommended for other packages in
47 the book. If they have dependent modules, those are either on this page
48 or else on the next page.
49 </para>
50
51 <para>
52 Modules utilized by packages throughout BLFS are listed here, along with
53 their dependencies.
54 </para>
55
56 <para>
57 In many cases, only the required or recommended dependencies are listed -
58 there might be other modules which allow more tests to be run, but
59 omitting them will still allow the tests to <literal>PASS</literal>.
60 </para>
61
62 <para>
63 For a few modules, the BLFS editors have determined that other modules
64 still listed as prerequisites are not required, and omitted them.
65 </para>
66
67 <para>
68 It is generally worth running the tests for perl modules, they often
69 can show problems such as missing dependencies which are required to
70 use the module. In some cases, such dependencies are marked as
71 '(for the testsuite)'.
72 </para>
73
74 <para>
75 It is possible to automatically install the current versions of a module and
76 all missing or too-old dependencies using CPAN. See the end of this page for
77 details.
78 </para>
79
80 <para>
81 Most of these modules only install files below <filename
82 class="directory">/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.xx.y</filename> and those will
83 not be documented. One or two install programs (mostly, perl scripts), or
84 a library, into <filename class="directory">/usr/bin/</filename> or
85 <filename class="directory">/usr/lib/</filename> and these
86 <emphasis>are</emphasis> documented.
