in thread How to create GUI for a perl script on MAC?/Apple Script and Perl?

It's slightly annoying...

:) if you ain't gonna look at the logs and figure it out, just get the binaries :)

    I'm not using ActivePerl on my Mac.

    Anyway, at the provided link i see "The build failed on this platform...". Nothing new.

    And i'm not using citrusperl.

    I mentioned my OS as well as my perl version in my post.

    So i'm wondering how to get this things together.

    Thank you very much for any hint and best regards, Karl

      Anyway, at the provided link i see "The build failed on this platform...". Nothing new.

      because it timed out, no other reason --u it succeeded for all other activeperl versions

      And i'm not using citrusperl.

      Maybe you should use it, you know, 5min to download, 1 min to install, and then you're done

      I mentioned my OS as well as my perl version in my post. So i'm wondering how to get this things together.

      read the log? Yeah, read the log, and then, read the log

      Also,  cpanm ... isn't magic bullet, if it fails, you're not going to fix anything with more  cpanm ... you need to cd to the module directory and do things yourself, perl Makefile.PL, make ... get an error message and resolve it

        Just for completeness, correctness and your information:

        I don't give up so fast, so i gave it a try again yesterday (on Lion, without cpanm).

        I gave up after about 6 hours - i skip the ugly details.

        This morning i retried it on Mountain Lion using cpanm and it works!

        I was a bit amazed, but it just works, nice.

        Best regards, Karl
