Thanks Mickey.

That doesn't appear to be a "module", but rather an archive of multiple modules, right?
(I'm new to CPAN, too).

So, is the instruction to download, unpack and install this archive, using sudo?

And, for my other question, should I install the other modules listed on the Download page using (sudo) CPAN?
