in reply to XML::LibXML and XML::LibXSLT ppd

Hi, I have managed to sucessfully install these libraries on both NT4 and on win2k. You need to follow the installation for the win32 binaries for the actual libraries (those from Once you have those installed you can then install the perl modules. These modules are just layers over the binaries installed so thats why you need both.

To install the Perl modules, I used nmake from Microsoft. Your activestate docs should show you how to use that. But in essence you can just substitute nmake for make in the old perl Makefile.PL, make, make install trinity.

I hope that helps, if not send me a msg :)

    I downloaded library from (, but how to install these flat files on windows .

    I pass parameter to like INC="pathto/inc/" and LIB="/pathto/lib/" but same error :

    looking for -llibxslt... no<br/> libxslt not found<br/> Try setting LIBS and INC values on the command line<br/> Or get libxslt and libxml2 from<br/><br/> If you install via RPMs, make sure you also install the -devel<br/> RPMs, as this is where the headers (.h files) are.</b>

      "I downloaded library from (, but how to install these flat files on windows . "

      Yet again you're determined to make life difficult for yourself. From the page you claim to have visited:

      "The precompiled Windows binaries made by Igor Zlatovic are available in the win32 directory."

      Read and understand what people tell you, and what websites actually say, especially when it's relevant to the platform specific notes for the tool you're trying to use. If you're either unwilling or unable to do so, consider paying someone to complete this task for you.

      You already have an open thread, why are you replying to a post from ten years ago?

        I am new to all this thing and I am learning in this forum. You can't do all things first time. Sometime you have to make some mistakes and learn from them. Nobody is perfect here...
      Well, LIBS is not LIB, it is LIBS

      Also, you asked simon.proctor who hasn't visited perlmonks in four years, new questions go in Seekers Of Perl Wisdom
