      How do i send attachments using SMTP in Windows?

Regardless of what platform you are on, I'd recommend you read (and understand) the excellent How-To published by Corion A detailed How-To for locally installing modules. Install cpan;//MIME::Lite locally and use it. You'll be glad you did.

If perchance you cannot for some misbegotten reason install the module locally I'd suggest you copy/paste the pertinate pieces of code from that module (as others have suggested) appropriately and use that.

If that still doesn't work for you... give up.

    Thank you very much for the help. I would see if i can download the module! But, is there any way this can be accomplished using SMTP (without using MIME) ?
      Yes, read the code and just do exactly what it does.

[Lady_Aleena]: tobyink, I did after I failed to get the BLOCK to work. I can't seem to get my brain around grep BLOCK, though I'm okay with grep EXPR.
[shmem]: so in the second example grep returns all true elements of the list passed
[Lady_Aleena]: Okay, so grep BLOCK is not like map BLOCK where something might need to be returned at the end.
[tobyink]: grep { $_ =~ /.*$in.*/; } @my_modules should work just fine. The problem is that you were adding on ;$_ at the end of the block. Why were you doing that?
[Lady_Aleena]: tobyink, I was thinking map.
[tobyink]: Something does need to be returned at the end not $_ though. You need to return (something that will be evaluated as) a boolean.
[Lady_Aleena]: Here is a longish map I did in the same script. my @my_modules = map { my $file = $_; $file =~ s/$module_director y(.+)\.pm/$1/; $file =~ s/\//::/g; $file; } @files;
[Lady_Aleena]: I spent half an hour trying to figure out why map was rewriting @files.
[tobyink]: If you like map you can do map { ($_ =~ /.*$in.*/) ? $_ : () } @my_modules and it will work just the same. grep is neater though.
[Lady_Aleena]: tobyink, I'll keep the grep as is. Thanks everyone!
