As an alternative:

I used nmake. Depending on your IDE/platform you might have to download nmake from M$. I recall it used to be included in Visual Studio.

You also need a C-compiler of course, see free compilers for some options. I used the bloodshed IDE (the Mingw compiler goes with that if I recall correctly).

    Hmmm,

    I recall spending long, arduous hours attempting to use nmake ... but could never get the perl Makefile.PL step to generate a make script that nmake didn't baulk at!!

    You'd never imagine the pleasure and indeed relief, I felt when some kind soul on this here site pointed me in the direction of Strawberry - an act for which I shall be eternally grateful :-D

    A user level that continues to overstate my experience :-))
