How To Install Perl Module From CPAN

To install Perl Module from CPAN, please see an example below:
perl -MCPAN -e 'install Time::JulianDay'

Recently, I have found that Ubuntu Linux (one of linux distributions I dislike) does not allow us to install Perl modules with the method above by default. Instead, Ubuntu packages Perl module into APT packages without providing a formal documentations to tell us which APT package contains which Perl modules. This just breaks minimalism. This does not sound like Linux system that I have seen where we can choose what we like and customize them we feel like. This is just boring. Luckily, I don't use Ubuntu anymore.
