Install a perl module to the main perl lib dir

Hello NG,

if I install new modules with the cpan
shell (windows), the modules will be installed
and stored under perldir/site/lib/[MODULE]
and not under perldir/lib/[MODULE] like the "base"
system which was installed after compiling perl
and use dmake install.

But if I look at ActiveStates Layout and
other diestributions, they have additional
modules installed under perldir/lib/[MODULE]
and _NOT_ under perldir/site/lib/[MODULE]

How they are made this? And Why?

Hello Thomas,

I've been struggling with some of your same questions but achieved a minor
breakthrough tonight.

I downloaded a recognizable, small module (Acme::something) and then
searched for it.  I installed a dos window in this "fortunate place."

You don't need perldir; you need the actual dir where activestate is
looking for this stuff.  Peace.
