in reply to HowTo build and distribute a PPMed module for Win32

The following blatherings have been on my homenode a while, for lack of a better place to put them.   This thread looks like a good home.   8^P
    striving toward Perl Adept
    (it's pronounced "why-bick")

Diary of a frustrated !(AS|PPM) Perl install on Win2k

  1. Retrieve and install Siemens' precompiled 5.00503 binary for win32.
  2. Edit d:\perl\5.00503\lib\MSWin32-x86\ to reflect installed drive letter if not default "C" (thanks to OeufMayo, Yohimbe)
  3. Retrieve and install pmake.
    • perl Makefile.PL
    • perl -I. pmake
    • perl -Mblib pmake test
    • perl -Mblib pmake install
  4. Copy to d:\perl\site\500503\lib\
  5. Install pure-Perl CPAN modules.
    • perl Makefile.PL
    • pmake.bat
    • pmake.bat test
    • pmake.bat install

    • Tie::IxHash - succeed
    • Net::Telnet - succeed
    • Term::ReadKey - <font size="-1">fail
    • Net::Telnet::Cisco - fail
  6. Keep digging - shouldn't have to manually copy .pm files to d:\perl\site\500503\lib\ ?!
  7. Continue pondering free(beer|speech) compilers for modules containing C/C++.
  8. from crazyinsomniac, but I've not got this far:
    • MM_Win32 UNINSTALL= $(Perl)... line doesn't appear to be valid perl syntaxt...
    • The \"\" stuff and also multiple -e switches...
    • Replace the \"\" with qq()...
    • Make needs the \ at the end of the line...
  9. Give up.   Install ActivePerl instead.
  10. Try again later.   Maybe.   If I get bored and ambitious

    Figures! I go to your home node often, yet managed to miss this somehow ... prob. in a fit of self-imporance ... ~sigh~

    I've never played w/ the Siemens' precompiled 5.00503 binary. In spite of my problems in the past with AS, it's still my Win32 perl of choice - at least since core perl merged into AS ... or the other way around ...

    Anywho, good to know. If Tutorials allows editing of root nodes, I'd like to modify mine post to specify AS better.

    Apply yourself to new problems without preparation, develop confidence in your ability to to meet situations as they arrise.
