If the module still exists in the cpan install link, then you can try this.


1. Enter cpan shell by typing cpan

2. In the cpan sheel type,

cpan> install path/to/file//xyz.tar.gz 

where path/to/file is the path to the tar file and xyz.tar.gz is the actual tar file.


For example to install an old version of mod_perl module you should give this command:


cpan> install D/DO/DOUGM/mod_perl-0.99.tar.gz
