    2929    objects to the <application>Perl</application> language. Modules utilized
    3030    by packages throughout BLFS are listed here, along with their dependencies.
    31     Most references to <application>Perl</application> modules are in the form
    32     of Module, Module::SubName or Module::Sub::Name, however occasionally
    33     you'll also see Module, Module-SubName or Module-Sub-Name. Most references
    34     on this page are in the latter form, as these are the official package
     31    Installation of the modules shown on this page should be accomplished by
     32    installing the listed dependencies (from the bottom and working up to the
     33    top) and then the desired module. Most references to
     34    <application>Perl</application> modules are in the form of Module,
     35    Module::SubName or Module::Sub::Name, though sometimes you'll see Module,
     36    Module-SubName or Module-Sub-Name. The references on this page that reflect
     37    an external URL are in the latter form, as these are the official package
    3538    names.</para>

    80     <para>One module in particular is shown first, as this module's usefulness

    83     included in, or has been installed into your <application>Perl</application>
    84     installation. Additionally, Module::Info can tell you what versions are
    85     installed and what dependencies are required for them. You can even use
    86     Module::Info to gather dependencies of uninstalled modules.</para>

    156     <para>The Module::Build module is a system for building, testing, and
    157     installing <application>Perl</application> modules. It is meant to be an
    158     alternative to ExtUtils::MakeMaker. Developers may alter the behavior of
    159     the module through subclassing in a much more straightforward way than with
    160     MakeMaker. It also does not require a <command>make</command> command on
    161     your system. Most of the Module::Build code is
    162     pure-<application>Perl</application> and written in a very cross-platform

     790    <application>Perl</application> installation, but there's really nothing to
     791    be alarmed about as these modules are only used by developers creating
