[Perlfect-search] SDBM, DB_File and AIX Unix versus Linux

Hi there,

To verify the existence of any perl module use the following command:

perl -e 'use SDMB'


perl -e 'use DB_File'


If the module exists you will get nothing; otherwise you will get an
error message.

DB_File is a perl module and you can download it and install it from The easiest way to do the whole thing(download and install) is
to use the CPAN module... Try this:

perl -MCPAN -e 'install DB_File'

If this is the first time you are running the CPAN module you will be
asked some questions... If you get confused just download and install
manually. It should be pretty straightforward...
