Phew! I've installed a module from CPAN and used it to dialup a connection!
I was sure that Re: Installing Perl on a Windows PC was wrong. Now I'm not so sure. As soon as I get under the bonnet it's like a big black hole.
I did notice this though:
Microsoft (R) Program Maintenance Utility Version 1.50
Copyright (c) Microsoft Corp 1988-94. All rights reserved.
C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe "-Iblib\lib" "-Iblib\arch" test.pl
not ok 2
not ok 6
Is it safe to ignore?
Many thanks for your help
btw, I thought your black hole looked a bit white!
