Perl error: Can't locate module in @INC

From a recent email: Help, I've just run into this Perl error: "Can't locate module in @INC".

Solution: If you get a Perl error message like "Can't locate in @INC", this message means that the Perl module you're trying to include (like the module named Foo) can't be found in Perl's include path, which is represented by the variable named @INC.

If you run into this error message, there are a couple of things that can be happening, and the following Perl blog postings I've written should help you. I've listed the posts in the order in which I think they'll help you troubleshoot your problem:

Finally, if the Perl module you need isn't already installed on your system, you're going to need to install it. I haven't written any articles on how to install a Perl module, so if you need to install one just look at this CPAN link on installing Perl modules.
