While playing around with pbnj or scanpbnj on Backtrack just a little bit ago I received an error when attempting to have scanpbnj output results to a CSV file. The error received is easily resolved by installing a single package on Backtrack. Below the error is described in more detail along with details about how to install the package that resolves the error message.
DBD/CSV Error Received When Outputting scanpbnj Results To A CSV File:
install_driver(CSV) failed: Can't locate DBD/CSV.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.10.1 /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.1 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.10 /usr/share/perl/5.10 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at (eval 79) line 3. Perhaps the DBD::CSV perl module hasn't been fully installed, or perhaps the capitalisation of 'CSV' isn't right. Available drivers: DBM, ExampleP, File, Gofer, Proxy, SQLite, Sponge, mysql. at /usr/local/bin/scanpbnj line 1900
The above error was output after modifying the /root/.pbnj-2.0/config.yaml file with “db: CSV” and “database: pbnjresults.csv” and then running “scanpbnj -i pbnjlist -p –dir pbnjdir/” from a Backtrack Terminal window. Luckily this is easy to resolve by installing the libdbd-csv-perl package in Backtrack as shown in the below example.
Install libdbd-csv-perl Using apt-get On Backtrack:

After installing libdbd-csv-perl I was able to run the same command and the results were output properly to CSV files named machine and services in the directory specified in the command. I will be writing a mini pbnj howto in the near future.
