Hi Clay,

First find out where is your Interchange executable (the Perl program file).
Try with 'which interchange' or 'whereis interchange'. If it doesn't help,
try looking in directories like /usr/lib/interchange/bin/, or ultimately

  find / -name interchange | grep bin/interchange

Then you need to look at it, to determine which Perl binary it uses.
To do so, run:

  head /path/to/bin/interchange

and look at the top of output, you should see something like:


Then you need to use that same Perl version to install Digest::MD5 in it.

   /path/to/perl -MCPAN -e 'install "Digest::MD5"'

After answering a few not-to-complicated questions, you should be get
Perl's CPAN module to download, compile and install Digest::MD5.

Hope it helps,
