If they are not available from CentOS (try 'yum install perl-Date-Parse'

modules, the easiest way to get packages from them is to install the
rpmforge-release rpm first:


And then try something like 'yum list perl*' to see what is available.

If they don't have the rpm you are after then the easiest thing might be
to build one yourself -- I find that cpanflute2 from the
perl-RPM-Specfile rpm works for most CPAN modules:


There is also more on this in the archives for this list...
