They are regular perl modules. They only run under mod_perl though. :-)

If you can, use the CPAN shell to install modules, (see 'perldoc CPAN')

Otherwise, download and extract the module then change into its
directory. Read the README and INSTALL files. Then - assuming those
files don't say differently - type

perl Makefile.PL
make test

And if you're happy with the results, su to root and type

make install

Hope this helps.
