Perl on Linux for Talend Open Studio

Perl interpreter

On all Linux distributions, Perl should be installed by default.

To make sure your Perl product is properly installed, launch a terminal and type in: perl -v This command will provide you with the Perl version installed on your station.

$ perl -v

This is perl, v5.8.7 built for i486-linux-gnu-thread-multi
(with 1 registered patch, see perl -V for more detail)

Perl modules

Installing the modules

Some routines, as well as some components might require various specific Perl modules, which are not installed by default along with the Perl basic install. Using cpan, install the required or recommended Perl modules:

$ cpan
CPAN: File::HomeDir loaded ok
cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.87)
ReadLine support enabled
cpan> install DBD::mysql
cpan> install DBD::ODBC
cpan> install DBD::Oracle
cpan> install DBI
cpan> install Email::Filter
cpan> install MIME::Lite
cpan> install Net::LDAP
cpan> install Spreadsheet::ParseExcel
cpan> install Spreadsheet::WriteExcel
cpan> install Text::ASCIITable
cpan> install Text::CSV_XS

Checking installs

Talend provides a tool to check the Perl modules installed. The modules view indicates for each component, the modules required, and for each module whether it is required and/or already installed. After installing a new module, simply click on “Refresh” to update the installation status.
