    I bet you have a 64-bit version of Perl. There's no mingw package for it, but you can install it yourself. See Re: Missing nmake - 64bit, Windows 7. (I'd try it without (d) first.) Or you could simply install a 32-bit version of Perl.
      jackpot ;-) thanks for the link!

      im using perl 5.12.3
      i can install modules via ppm and cpan.
      ppm refuses mingw => cant find any package..
      cpan> i /mingw/
      Module < Wx::build::Config::Win32_MinGW (MBARBON/Wx-0.27.tar.gz)
      Module < Wx::build::MakeMaker::Win32_MinGW (MBARBON/Wx-0.98.tar.gz)
      if i try to install these => dmake not ok
      .. :-(

      at How to isntall cpan modules theres a chapter "Installing a make utility and C compiler on 64-bit Windows".. im using x64 with win7 since a few days.. for that i think this part dont belong to me.. => im getting tired with it ;-) hehe.. so long..

      $perlig =~ s/pec/cep/g if 'errors expected';

[ambrus]: was this bug: https://rt.cpan. org/Public/Bug/ Display.html?id= 59814
[Corion]: ambrus: Oh - that one would be much harder to automate... The SYNOPSIS section should mostly be a runnable program IMO, but I write only small snippets in my documentation for single functions/methods, and creating the appropriate environment for ...
[Corion]: ... those in an automated fashion seems somewhat hard to me. Although it should do wonders for the test coverage ;)
[haukex]: Corion: I once wrote an automated thingy for that here
[haukex]: here's the code that uses it
[Corion]: haukex: Hmm - maybe I can reuse that. I see that it uses Pod::Parser, which I think was one of the more fragile parsers. But if I'm statically (re)generating the tests instead of doing that "live" on the client/tester machines, that's a much smaller...
[Corion]: ... problem space than trying to cater to all versions of Pod::Parser(s)
