WARNING: This documentation covers Parallels H-Sphere versions up to 3.1. For the latest up-to-date Parallels H-Sphere documentation, please proceed to the official Parallels site.

In version 2.5 and up, all necessary Perl modules to be used by H-Sphere on supported OS are installed from a single package hsphere-perl-x-x.

There is no need to update H-Sphere Perl modules by yourself, as when Perl version is updated/downgraded, the /hsphere/local/config/perl/hspmod.switch utility is used to switch Perl to a proper H-Sphere Perl modules version.
hspmod.switch has the following syntax:

hspmod.switch { -l | -v perl_version }
-l lists all possible H-Sphere perl module versions you may switch to.
-v switches to the modules of proper perl_version, which must be specified in 0-9.0-9.0-9 format.

The modules for both native OS perl and currently stable perl (versions 5.8.7 and 5.8.8) are included into the latest perl package update.

The following Perl modules are included into the latest hsphere-perl package and installed to /hsphere/shared/lib/perl5/ or /hsphere/shared/lib/perl5/site_perl: To see the list of modules with their versions for the specific hsphere-perl package run the following command (specify the build instead of x-x):
rpm -q --provides hsphere-perl-x-x

The above mentioned modules are installed with hsphere-perl and required for proper H-Sphere work. If you need other system Perl modules, you should install them by yourself.
