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.
