CentOS / RHEL: Install PostgresSQL Interface for Perl (perl-DBD-Pg)

How do I install PostgresSQL interface for perl for programming purpose under Redhat / RHEL / Fedora / CentOS Linux?

perl-DBD-Pg is an implementation of DBI (a database interface for Perl) for PostgreSQL for Perl. This packages allow you to access database environments in a standard way. The system implements each supported database environment as a DBD driver, in much the same way that hardware devices from multiple vendors can operate with different CPU platforms. You can install it as follows using the yum command:
# yum install perl-DBD-Pg
Sample outputs:
