in reply to Perl & XML & LibXML


This module is a hybrid one, made up of Perl and something else. On a sane operating system you would install the library first, libxml2 from XMLSoft in this case, then build the Perl module, and your compiler would link the two together.

You are on Windows, an insane operating system, so you need to obtain a complier, either buy one from Microsoft, or try one of the many free ones, e.g. Cygwin. If you don't have a compiler, then someone else with a compiler needs to compile the bits for you and give you a ready compiled version.

ActiveState compile some modules that their paying customers have asked for, and there are other people who also provide modules as binaries (see below). All you need to do is find some nice person who has the binary for your version of Perl, and install that via PPM.
