in reply to Enbugger on Windows

Is there an Enbugger-ppm for ActiceState somewhere or can you build it for Strawberry - and does it work with perl2exe?

Just because you're using ActivePerl from ActiveState does not mean that you can't install modules from CPAN.

Assuming that you're using a 32-bit version of ActivePerl on a system with access to the internet, here's what you need to do to be able to install modules directly from CPAN.

  • Use PPM to install mingw and dmake, which are available from the default ActiveState repository.
    • If you're wanting to use Strawberry Perl, it already has the components needed to install modules from CPAN.
  • If your system is behind a proxy, you'll need to add the http_proxy environment variable with the correct information to you Windows OS.
  • Now, from a command prompt, you can install modules directly from CPAN by using syntax like cpan install Enbugger

As far as compatibility with perl2exe, I can't say since I've never used that utility before. If for some reason you do encounter issues with perl2exe, you can always install PAR::Packer and use the pp utility to bundle your code into a stand-alone exe file.

[ambrus]: 1nickt: that's the theory. the theory is also that it should have dried by Sunday morning, but it didn't. so I dunno.
[ambrus]: I'll try today evening if it works now.
