The best way to load any of the perl stuff in ubuntu/debian is to look
for it with something like:-
aptitude search <string or regex>
You will see likely looking packages ending in '-perl' so curses is:-
aptitude install libcurses-perl
You can use "apt-get install" instead. Either will work, aptitude is
just a bit cleverer, none of which you need here. However, the aptitude
search function is much less verbose than 'apt-cache search' and easier
You also need:-
aptitude install libtimedate-perl libnet-telnet-perl libdigest-sha1-perl
Everything else is now part of the standard perl distro.
You can do a similar thing with 'yum install' for Fedora boxes, the
names of the packages are just slightly different.
