I wrote a program that used File::Basename. It worked in the laptop, but
when I uploaded the program to the host, it didn't work. My presumption is
that the host doesn't have Basename.

So I uploaded into the same directory where my perl file
resides. Then I added lines like these into my program: 
use File::Basename;
require "";

Here is one error:
[Tue May 22 17:24:09 2001] [Tue May 22 17:24:09 2001] Perl
5.00564 required--this is only version 5.00503, stopped at line
138. [Tue May 22 17:24:09 2001] BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at line 138. 

So, I simply performed the function with a regular expression.

But the basic question stays in my mind. If I need a module, what is the/a
constructive way of dealing with this?

Thank you.
