in reply to How to install "Perl GUI Loft" on Strawberry Perl?

I was able to download the source, extract and install it on a Windows 8 64-bit machine. Here's what I did

Open a command shell, cd into the PPM directory and execute install.bat

You mentioned ppm not found... 2 thoughts come to mind.

  • Is c:\strawberry\perl\bin in your PATH?
  • cpan install PPM

I had problems with Win32::GUI. As other's have mentioned, Loft is using an old version. There was a "known" problem with using this version on 64-bit windows. See this. I had to grab that patched version of Win32::GUI extract it to a directory and build it using the familiar: Perl Makefile.PL, dmake, dmake install.

After which, I was able to cd into the Demo directories and run the perl scripts provided

    ggoebel: thank you. I have Win32::GUI and the GUI Loft running on Windows 7 64 bit, with Strawberry perl 5.14.2.

    By the way, do you have an idea, how to make Win32::GUI work with Unicode/UTF-8?

shmem doesn't have mp3info, but mp3info2 - which is a perl script ;-)
[marioroy]: my @music_times = qx(find \$HOME/Music/ Albums/ -type f -iname '*.mp3' -exec mp3info -p "%S\\\n" {} \\;);
[marioroy]: might need 2 or 3 backslash for \n. Also \\;
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, there is MP3::Info/
[Discipulus]: too much complex qx when you know perl are better to avoid
[marioroy]: might need to backslash \'*.mp3\'
[marioroy]: It's a quoting issue inside qx. It's File::Find or qx. LA chooses qx. Almost there.
