tc1364 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Can you please assist me with what needs to be done to be able to install the Zlib-1.34 module? Below is what is being returned and a listing of the other modules installed.

    sh: cc: not found

    Do you have a C compiler installed? If so, how do you invoke it? Is it in your PATH? Instead of just typeing make, you may have to type make CC=/path/to/c-compiler.

    90% of every Perl application is already written.
      The system administrator was able to install it. this was the first I have had this type of trouble and what is even more troubling is that I was runnning it as root. Thanks!

    Which C-compiler did your sysadmin install?.. The Solaris one or GCC?

    If you do a "which cc", can it find your compiler?...

    If not, you might want to do the following:

    find /usr -name cc

    .. and whatever directory it finds that in, if it finds it, add that to your PATH environment variable.

    I bet after you do that this will work.
