    "I've tried to install it manually from CPAN but it failed, ..."

    Without any indication of how it failed, we're not really in a position to advise what you might do differently. The guidelines in "How do I post a question effectively?" should aid you in providing better information to help us to help you.

    "... just now i installed Alien::SDL but i dont know what to do with it."

    The Alien::SDL documentation explains what it's for and gives examples. Again, without more concrete information, I'm at a loss as to how we can help. Perhaps ask yourself why you installed it in the first place.

      Maybe Perl isn't the wright language for something like this.

        Frozen_Bubble is written in Perl/SDL. Unless you explain how something failed nobody can help you. Please read and understand How do I post a question effectively?.

        Perhaps you have no sane build environment. ActiveState does not ship with a C compiler and build tools by default. You can install these by typing PPM MinGW from the command prompt, or better still, switch to Strawberry Perl, which ships with these tools and a whole lot more as standard.
