in thread problems installing Spreadsheet::WriteExcel

Sorry. Forgot to mention. I'm running it on WinXP. I downloaded nmake from here, but only after configuring CPAN, so maybe it can't locate it now.

When I run ppm it simply says

No matches for 'Spreadsheet::WriteExcel'; see 'help search'.

Which I think means that it couldn't get over the firewall (since it also can't locate other, common, modules).

    Change the '::' separator to '-', ie: ppm install Spreadsheet-WriteExcel

    If you're running from the ppm prompt, you can search then install by the number of the result.

    What an awkward sentence that was! I'll just paste a screenshot:

    ppm> search WriteExcel Searching in Active Repositories 1. Spreadsheet-WriteEx~ [0.41] (none) 2. Spreadsheet-WriteEx~ [0.42] Write to a cross platform Excel binar +y file 3. Spreadsheet-WriteEx~ [0.42] Write to a cross platform Excel binar +y file 4. Spreadsheet-WriteEx~ [0.09] Convert a database table to an Excel +spreadsh~ 5. Spreadsheet-WriteEx~ [1.01] Create Excel Spreadsheet from XML 6. Spreadsheet-WriteEx~ [1.02] Create Excel Spreadsheet from XML 7. Spreadsheet-WriteEx~ [1.02] Create Excel Spreadsheet from XML 8. Spreadsheet-WriteEx~ [0.03] A simple single-sheet Excel document ppm> install 6

      Don't think that'll work. I can't even get past the

      search Spreadsheet::WriteExcel

      Even using

      search spreadsheet

      doesn't give me anything.

[LanX]: I want the command line in the history

[Corion]: Option a) would mean launching cmd.exe /k c:\path\to\ batchfile- launching-perl- script.cmd. Option b) would be to add pause as the last line of said batch file.
[LanX]: First day after holidays ... and already stressed by the fact that colleagues changed stuff without communication ... apparently I'm the only one trying to fight entropy
[Corion]: LanX: The command is always in the history if you typed it in before. If you didn't type the command into the command line, it will not be there. I think there is doskey which can stuff command lines into the history

[LanX]: please forget my last 3 posts
[LanX]: Yeah option a doesn't go into history
