in thread problem while installing the perl module manually!!!

I can explain that error.

The module PadWalker is a dependency of Spreadsheet::WriteExcel. PadWalker apparently uses some XS code, which requires a C compiler. Since ActiveState Perl was compiled with Microsoft Visual Studio it is looking for a program called "cl" which is a command line C compiler that comes with Visual Studio.

You may be able to get it working by downloading Visual C++ Express and adding its bin directory to your path. But If you aren't planning on doing any C development in the future, you are better off just installing the precompiled PPM as another commenter suggested, here are some instructions on how to do that.

    Thanks Everyone for your valuable inputs
    Am able to install all the modules without any error & even able to run my perl script without any issues.
    Now,am facing 1 more issues ie,
    Am using Eclipse IDE for debugging perl script or can say
    for step by step execution so that i can see local variable value during run time
    since to view the local variable value during run time,Eclipse want PadWalker module to get install
    for Pad Walker module we need Visual C++ Express installed.
    now, my real problem: i have Win2k OS but this Visual C++ Express needs WinXP to get installed
    so now i got struck :-(
    Can any one tell me any other mean to achieve my problem ?
    when i tried to install the PadWalker i got this ouput:
    C:\CPAN Modules\PadWalker-1.5>perl Makefile.pl<br> Writing Makefile for PadWalker<br> C:\CPAN Modules\PadWalker-1.5>nmake<br> Microsoft (R) Program Maintenance Utility Version 1.50 Copyright (c) Microsoft Corp 1988-94.

    Is it possible to view the local variable value during run time without installing PadWalker ??

      Like http://www.epic-ide.org/faq.php says, no.
      ppm install http://www.bribes.org/perl/ppm/PadWalker.ppd
