Newbie: Installing HTML::Table module

Try getting the tarball on to your FreeBSD system and extracting it there.
I generally have an 'install' directory that I create (i.e.
'/usr/local/install') where I would place the tarball. Change to that
directory and type:
tar xvfz HTML-Table-1.03.tar.gz
This will extract the files into a directory (probably called
'HTML-Table-1.03'). You can now delete the tarball 'HTML-Table-1.03.tar.gz'
if you want. Now 'CD' into the 'HTML-Table-1.03' directory. Install should
be a piece of cake from there ... just make sure you read any 'README'

Subject: Newbie: Installing HTML::Table module
I have downloaded the module HTML-Table-1.03.tar.gz from CPAN.
Having extracted it under Windows, I copied the contained files
to a DOS floppy, from there to /dos on my FreeBSD PC
(not yet Internet-ready) and then ran:
But got error messages:
Cannot create blib/man3/HTML::Table.3 error22
Cannot install blib/man3/HTML::Table.3
Is this because I need to be installing from a different directory
Or because I extract the tarball under Windows?
If I were to install from the tarball under FreeBSD what would I do?
Thanks for any help.
PS Perl is working fine otherwise
