I am trying to run a perl program which has in it

use HTML::Entities ();

only when I go to run the perl program I get

[tony at ringo FetchYahoo]$ ./fetchyahoo.pl --help
Can't locate HTML/Entities.pm in @INC (@INC contains:
/usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at ./fetchyahoo.pl line 40.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./fetchyahoo.pl line 40.

I have HTML/Entities.pm on my system

[root at ringo rpms]# ls -l
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.6.1/i386-linux/HTML/Entities.pm -r--r--r--    1 root     root        11359 Nov  6  2001 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.6.1/i386-linux/HTML/Entities.pm
[root at ringo rpms]# 

Question:  How do I tell the perl program I want to run where
HTML::Entities is?

Thanks for the help
