Hi Monks,

Good Day to everyone !! I seek a solution to my problem on installing CGI::Session on windows. I am unable to build the source for CGI::Session and i get error as:

syntax error at -e line 1, near "'755' ]" Missing right curly or square bracket at -e line 1, at end of line Execution of -e aborted due to compilation errors. NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe' : return code '0xff' Stop.

Please help me out.

    You're using the wrong make for your build of perl, so use what perl -V:make reports

    Or tell Makefile.PL to use nmake perl Makefile.PL MAKE=NMAKE

    Or you need to upgrade ExtUtils::MakeMaker and its dependencies

    Or use Build.PL instead

    perl Build.PL Build test Build install
      Hi Everyone,

      I am very happy that both and perl Makefile.PL MAKE=NMAKE worked !!! I am very Thankful to you for resolving my problem so fast :)

      Thanks Monks !

      Also is there any resource to know more on building packages and configuration stuffs. I will be very happy to know !!

      Have nice day !!

        One or more of the following may be of interest to you. Either use perldoc manpage from the commandline or link from (under the Reference Manual section).

    syntax error at -e line 1, near "'755' ]"

    Could you provide the output produced by running
    perl -V
