matth has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Dear Monks,

Can anyone please explain this.

bash-2.05$ perl -I/home/redden/.cpan/build/XML-Clean-1.04 -e 'print jo +in"\n",@INC' /home/redden/.cpan/build/XML-Clean-1.04 /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl bash-2.05$ perl Can't locate XML/ in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1 +/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/i386- +linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at X line 3. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at line 3. bash-2.05$

    You don't have the XML::Clean module installed on your system.

    The @INC array simply tells you where perl will look (or has tried to look) for modules it needs to execute a particular script.

    You can download and install the module here - everything should work as you expect once you've done that.
    Instructions to help you install modules are available on CPAN here.

    Hope that helps.

    Update: Um, Perl is case-sensitive - CLean isn't the same as Clean. The error you're pasting shows CLean - if it's like that in your code, then you'll get the error you're seeing. Make sure you're spelling (including case) the module name correctly.

      Time for me to go to the opticians.

    Can't locate XML/ in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1 +/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/i386- +linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at X line 3. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at line 3.
    Well, my guess is that the file doesn't exist in any of those directories, just like it said, and you didn't show anything to suggest it did.

    Try perl -I/home/redden/.cpan/build/XML-Clean-1.04

    I could be wrong. I have been before. ;)
    However, this looks like you downloaded and extracted the files for XML::Clean but didn't install it!

      bash-2.05$ perl -e 'use ExtUtils::Installed; $inst = ExtUtils::Install +ed->new(); print join "\n", $inst->modules();' DBI DBIx::XML_RDB Parse::Yapp Perl XML-DOM XML::Catalog XML::Checker XML::Clean XML::DT XML::Dumper XML::Edifact XML::Generator XML::Grove XML::Handler::YAWriter XML::Node XML::Parser XML::QL XML::RSS XML::RegExp XML::Registry XML::Simple XML::Twig XML::Writer XML::XPath XML::XQL libxml-enno libxml-perlbash-2.05$

        If it's installed correctly then you don't need to include the directory where you extracted the files to...

        So, why did you include /home/redden/.cpan/build/XML-Clean-1.04 in the first place?
