      I don't believe Tk is on CPAN any longer.

It isn't?

    Curious. I wonder why I'm getting this message then, when running 'cpan Tk':

    Going to read 'C:\Perl64\cpan\Metadata'
      Database was generated on Mon, 28 Jan 2013 12:06:54 GMT
    Warning: Cannot install tk, don't know what it is.
    Try the command
    
        i /tk/
    
    to find objects with matching identifiers.
    CPAN: Time::HiRes loaded ok (v1.9721)
    

    Is there an easy way a Windows user could install this package? Pardon my ignorance but I'm not up on running make builds on Windows (7).

    thanks!

    Hmm, never mind, might have been an uppercase (read: user) error.

    But am now getting this:

    Writing Makefile for Tk
    'nmake' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.
      SREZIC/Tk-804.030.tar.gz
      nmake -- NOT OK
    Running make test
      Can't test without successful make
    Running make install
      Make had returned bad status, install seems impossible
    

      Something must be up with your environment. Here's what I get:

      $ cpan cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.960001) Enter 'h' for help. cpan[1]> install Tk Going to read '/home/pberghold/.cpan/Metadata' Database was generated on Wed, 16 Jan 2013 02:41:03 GMT Fetching with LWP: http://cpan.belfry.net/authors/01mailrc.txt.gz Going to read '/home/pberghold/.cpan/sources/authors/01mailrc.txt.gz' ...................................................................... +......DONE Fetching with LWP: http://cpan.belfry.net/modules/02packages.details.txt.gz Going to read '/home/pberghold/.cpan/sources/modules/02packages.detail +s.txt.gz' Database was generated on Tue, 29 Jan 2013 01:29:02 GMT .............. ..............................................................DONE Fetching with LWP: http://cpan.belfry.net/modules/03modlist.data.gz Going to read '/home/pberghold/.cpan/sources/modules/03modlist.data.gz +' ...................................................................... +......DONE Going to write /home/pberghold/.cpan/Metadata Tk is up to date (804.030). cpan[2]>
      Granted, mine's already installed.
