in thread setting up SQL-Translator help

thank you for the methods described. ive aknowledged my "mistake" of installing DBIx::Class from cpan and ive got some errors i believe and it didnt let me install SQL::Translator because it failed some tests,so i decided to install SQL::Translator from cpan ,and it gave me lots of errors and dependencies(i dont understand why it doesnt know how to treat dependencies automatically) so i said ... fuck ill install it from ppm. so i tried what i said in the previous posts.

then i figgured that people at ppm made their repo so that even tough they dont have the newest stuff,it is all compatible, and i also saw that ppm is better than cpan because it solves dependencies automatically and that solved my problem.

i have also some unconfirmed hunch: cpan uses mingw to compile some stuff when it installs some packages. and some questions: are there automated,nice ways of installing the newest packages on windows ?

    CPAN can be configured to auto-follow dependencies, ask you, or skip them. It sounds like yours is set for the latter - you can change it as follows from inside the CPAN program (the second line makes the change permanent):

    o conf prerequisites_policy follow o conf commit

    That said, that won't get around the lack of a default compiler on Windows. If you have one, A Practical Guide to Compiling C based Modules under ActiveState using Microsoft C++ and its subsequent comments are a good guide. Strawberry Perl is also worth a look at (though be aware of the 'alpha release' note):

    Strawberry Perl is part of the Vanilla Perl Project to provide a binary distribution of Perl for the Windows operating system. It includes a bundled compiler and pre-installed modules that offer the ability to install XS CPAN modules directly from CPAN. The purpose of the Strawberry Perl series is to provide a practical Win32 Perl environment for experienced Perl developers to experiment with and test the installation of various CPAN modules under Win32 conditions, and to provide a useful platform for doing real work.

    Hope that helps.
