How to update a perl module .pm file ?

P: 1

This is a newbie question.

I updated this perl module file, which is used by my cgi script. But when I run cgi, the change in file doesn't seem to be picked up.

How do I update file ?

Thanks !

If you changed something in a module, and your main perl script uses that module, the changes are effective immediately. There is nothing you have to do. Why your perl script does not seem to see the changes must be from some other problem you are missing. Possibly the pages that display the results of your CGI script are cached locally, and you are seeing the cached pages. Try emptying the browsers cached files and see if that works. You can also press key combinations to force the server to not use a cached page, something like pressing and holding the shift key and click on the "go" button on the browser.

if you are using that pm file which might be installed
for ex. if pm file name is and you are using it like "use pkg1;"

then try to reinstall the module and check it.
