Wikipedia entry for Perl

Names for Perl modules in openSUSE are derived from their CPAN names with the following rules: Replace all '::' delimiters with '-', and prepend 'perl-', capitalization remains exactly unchanged.

With these names you find perl packages in the Build Service. The search results list the relevant repositories and feature one-click installs for each package.

A typical repository for perl packages is:
- add the *.repo file with zypper or yast.


zypper ar -f -n perl-modules perl-modules

See also Packaging perl modules and Packaging perl modules (old wiki) for instructions how to add more modules to the openSUSE Build Service.
