24<para>The <application>Perl</application> module packages add useful objects
25to the <application>Perl</application> language. Modules utilized by packages
26throughout <acronym>BLFS</acronym> are listed here, along with their
27dependencies. Most references to <application>Perl</application> modules are
28in the form of Module, Module::SubName or Module::Sub::Name, however
29occasionally you'll also see Module, Module-SubName or Module-Sub-Name. Most
30references on this page are in the latter form, as these are the official
31package names.</para>

43<para>One module in particular is shown first, as this module's usefulness
44warrants installation, even though it won't be required by many other modules.
45The Module::Info module can tell you if a particular module is included in,
46or has been installed into your <application>Perl</application> installation.
47Additionally, the module can tell you what versions are installed and what
48dependencies are required for them. You can even use Module::Info to gather
49dependencies of uninstalled modules.</para>
