in reply to Net::SSLeay and Strawberry Perl

I presume you are using the Shining Light OpenSSL install for Windows?

I have just tried Strawberry with version 0.9.8a and it compiled, built, tested and installed fine.

One thing you have to do though is copy the files from C:\OpenSSL\lib\MinGW to C:\OpenSSL\lib

Hope that helps.

    Could you please add a page on it to if there isn't one already? That seems like a common question.

    I tried to do what you said, but the install still fails.

    C:OpenSSL\lib\ now contains libeay32.a, libeay32.def, ssleay32.a, and ssleay32.def. I try to run the install command and get the following:

    Cannot determine perl version info from lib/Net/ Cannot determine license info from lib/Net/ *** Found OpenSSL-0.9.8g installed in C:\OpenSSL *** Be sure to use the same compiler and options to compile your OpenS +SL, perl, and Net::SSLeay.

    It then spews a bunch of errors again, and exits with the following:
    dmake.EXE: Error code 129, while making 'SSLeay.o' FLORA/Net-SSLeay-1.32.tar.gz C:\strawberry\c\bin\dmake.EXE -- NOT OK
    Is there some environment variable I need to modify or some other file I need to copy?

    I appreciate the help.

      I notice your gcc -c  -IC:\... line doesn't have the -IC:\OpenSSL\include needed to find OpenSSL's header files. Could that be the problem? Try running:

      C:\> SET INCLUDE_PATH=C:\OpenSSL\Include C:\> cpan install Net::SSLeay
      and see if that changes the error message.
        I just wanted to confirm that this does indeed work. It allowed me to install Net::SSLeay (1.35) successfully using Shining Light openSSL v0.9.8j and strawberry perl (Windows XP SP3) (the OP never responded re. his/her success)
