I am in an environment with a fairly old Perl

5.8.7 is not "fairly old" it's ancient.

If you need to update or install new modules for the system perl, you should "sudo bash" first, then do your install. If you don't have "sudo bash" rights, then you need to either have someone else install it for you, or use perlbrew to install a new version of perl under your home directory so that you have full control over it.
