 10<h1>Perl Modules</h1>
 11
 12<p>
 13    Most Perl modules are written in Perl, some use <a href=
 14    "http://perldoc.perl.org/perlxs.html">XS</a> (they are written in <a href=
 15    "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C_(programming_language)">C</a>) so require a
 16    C <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compiler">compiler</a>. Modules may have
 17    dependencies on other modules (almost always on <a href=
 18    "http://www.cpan.org/">CPAN</a>) and cannot be installed without them (or
 19    without a specific version of them). Many modules on CPAN now require a
 20    recent version of Perl (version 5.8 or above).
