How do i install a CPAN package in Arch?

I need the perl module Net::GPSD3, but this seems not to be available from pacman.

I tried to find it with "pacman -Ss perl-net", no result.

Have you installed any CPAN packages on your Pi?

It looks like the package name is net-GPSD3 or perl-net-GPSD3 but I do not see it looking for these names either.

No, i couldnt manage to install a CPAN pkg.

But it doesnt really matter to me anymore, i coded a small script in order to set date from gpsd data at boot time. Gpspipe did half the job. ;)
