Installing DBI

In order to install DBI you first need to uncompress the file. At the writing of this book the current stable version of DBI was 1.18. This is how we can expand the file:

bash# tar xfz DBI-1.18.tar.gz

This should create a directory called DBI-1.18. Lets go into the directory and start the compile and then install the package:

bash# cd DBI-1.18/
bash# perl Makefile.PL
bash# make
bash# make install

There will be other stuff that comes on the screen, but if none of it looks like error messages then you are probably doing everything correctly. Now, let's go back to the directory below us and expand the next one.
