    Greetings,

    Does anyone know how to uninstall a module from perl? I have read some posts that say to delete the .cpan directory and re-install perl, this seems a bit drastic or is it so.

    Any advice would be great, the module is TK as it has installed with many errers and in not operating correctly.

    Thanksnow

    L4s.

    I removed the sql::statement module once. I did 'locate' can found it was at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1/i686-linux/SQL

    I made a backup of that directory and then deleted it. The new sql::statement installed with no problems. You might be able to use the same procedure.
