With regards to the safety measures put in place by the university to mitigate the risks of the COVID-19 virus, at this time all MSI systems will remain operational and can be accessed remotely as usual. The only planned outages concern our in-person Helpdesk and tutorials. More information, as well as alternative remote support options, can be found at MSI COVID-19 Continuity Plan

Although perl is installed globally on all Linux systems, the version can vary across clusters. To avoid complications, MSI recommends users load perl from software modules:
module load perl
If you need additional perl modules installed, you can add them using local::lib (included in the MSI perl module):
perl -MCPAN -Mlocal::lib -e 'install <MODULE_NAME>'
perl -MCPAN -Mlocal::lib -e 'CPAN::install(<MODULE_NAME>)'
Both of these commands will install modules to $HOME/perl5. If you wish to override the installation path, or change other installation options, see the local::lib documentation. The version of perl provided in the MSI module looks in $HOME/perl5 at runtime for any modules. If you override the installation path, or use a different version of perl, you may need to reconfigure your environment with this command (update the -I path as necessary):
eval $( perl -I$HOME/perl5 -Mlocal::lib )
