compiling perl modules in a cgi-bin Can't Post

I am developing some scripts for xml, browser and meta analysis and will require XML modules. My web provider doesn't support these and most paid services I checked don't either. The ones I found that do are more expensive than I can afford or require I rent a dedicated server. Once done, the scripts will be less than 10MB. My question: Can I install modules in a cgi-bin w/o a shell account and is there a way to convert a module to a .pl or .pm file?

This is answered in the perlfaqs that come with perl.

The trick is running the 'compiles' non-interactively, but you can do so easily via sh or perl scripts executed as CGIs as it's a pretty boiler plate procedure.

Perhaps you should take a look at rBuild hack, which was someone else's take on this very subject.
