ZAP2XML needs missing perl dependencies

Howdy All,
I am running an EMBY Server on my ASUS-STOR 3204T. I am using zap2xml to download TV Guide listings for my OTA (Over The Air) Live TV inside the EMBY Server. Right now, I am doing this on my Windows 10 Pro laptop. I don't want to use it now that I have the ASUSTOR NAS Device running my EMBY Server. So, zap2xml uses Perl and they provide a Perl file that will grab all the info I need. However, when I run the Perl file on the ASUSTOR, I get an error that Perl needs some dependencies. So, I tried to install those, but I am unsure how. I am a Windows User, not a Linux user and not even close to understanding Perl or any programming languages. So, I am looking for anyone who can help me get this Perl file to run so that the needed guide info can be automatically downloaded on the ASUSTOR. Currently, I have a Task Scheduler running 3 batch files to get the guide info and then copy it to the ASUSTOR where my EMBY Server is pointing to them in a directory stored on the ASUSTOR.

So, I can't be the only person on the planet using an ASUSTOR running EMBY that is trying to use zap2xml to get OTA Guide data. At least, I hope not. Either way, I need some assistance. If you can help, or point me to where I can get help, please do. I would appreciate it. Thanks.

What dependencies do you need?

if you find the dependency on
https://metacpan.org/

you should, along the left side column see an "Install Instructions" link, which should get you there with the CPAN shell. For example,
perl -MCPAN -e shell
install <module name>
