You can download the modules from http://search.cpan.org, or use the CPAN module:
%perl -MCPAN -e "shell"
at CPAN.pm prompt
I recommend, however, to install manually (configure, make, make install). CPAN.pm complains a lot
when installing new modules, especially if the new modules requires some others to be built before it.
Don't know if this is cygwin specific, but I've never experience as much problems on *nix machines.
Building all new modules, including the required ones, manually worked best for me.
I did finally get Tcl and Tcl::Tk working. Remember to install tcl tk libraries first. I had some hassle getting
everything to work, mostly owed to problems with CPAN.pm. Unfortunately, I did keep the notes of
exactly what I did.
I needed Tcl::Tk to get SIXPACK running (a reference manager aka Endnote). Works excellent!
