How to get Tk for ActiveState Perl 5.14.2?

aplonis has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

First I installed AS Perl 5.14.2 on Vista Ultimate. Then I installed repositories for Win32 from top of this list...
WWW
...but no Tk there.

Failing that I next installed MinGW via PPM and tried...
cpan -i Tk
...but won't build as make returns bad status, thus...

Failed during this command: SREZIC/Tk-804.030.tar.gz : make NO

What next to try, please?

    See Re^3: Perl/Tk Issues - Tk is available at the bribes repository. However, it is usually easier to use the GUI version of ppm. Type just "ppm" with no args at the command line. The standard repositories are already known to ppm, but you have to enable them. Look in the Edit|Preferences dialog in the GUI version of PPM.

      The three Win32 repositories listed do not contain Tk, the base package. The Bribes repository is not listed for 5.14.2 version. Is it okay to include Bribes even though it is specified for 5.12 but not 5.14?

        No, it is not ok to install a ppm package marked for perl 5.12 on perl 5.14, it won't work. If you try to install it, ppm will refuse to install it.

        But    http://www.bribes.org/perl/ppm/Tk.ppd   clearly shows one listed for 5.14, so what are you looking at, what did you do?

    Hi apolonis

    Its customary to mark your updates, see How do I change/delete my post?

    You already said  cpan -i Tk failed. This

    Failed during this command: SREZIC/Tk-804.030.tar.gz : make NO

    while more characters, doesn't qualify as details.

    You can obtain details by

    Turn on debug/logging, increase verbosity... cpan> o debug all http://perldoc.perl.org/CPAN.html#Debugging

    Run

    perl Makefile.PL make make test make install
    yourself cpan> look Tk

    copy/paste the first error messages, and show us

      Hi I added following link in my ppm repository "http://www.bribes.org/perl/ppm" then it listed Tk module and installed successfully. regards, Prabhakaran.
