    According to AS this module has not passed its tests.

    Nonsense, that is not what the log says at all , it says

    *** You didn't read the README file! No executable ESQL/C compiler found in $PATH

    Very similar to what the op gets

    'INFORMIXC' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
      I have already worked through the "You didn't read the README file! No executable ESQL/C compiler found in $PATH" message. I do have an executable ESQL/C compiler in my path. The error I'm getting is because an invalid line is being generated (i.e., INFORMIXC='C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe esqlld' ESQLLD=..) which is not a valid command. I need to find out where/how this line is generated and how to correct it.

      "Its not how hard you work, its how much you get done."

        use "nmake -n install" or "nmake -n all" http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/afyyse50.aspx and look at the output. Its the first step in repairing the makefile. There might be Makefile.PL code generating incompatible make syntax designed for a different make program in your module (I dont know anything specific about DBD::Informix).
      I did read the log. When ever I debug a module running under AS, I always look to the AS site to see if the module has been tested. If it has not then I know I might have issues, if it has failed then I know I will have issues. Once armed with these details I know what to look for...

        I did read the log.

        So in which log does it complain about failing tests?

        It never compiles

[Your Mother]: Stick with what you know. Or post a SOPW and if it's not complicated I guarantee someone will answer; me if it's straightforward and no one else gets it better first.

[Lady_Aleena]: Um, how does grep do multiline? print "$file:$_" if grep { /get_(array|hash| data)\(.+\)/ } $_; only returns the same 18 lines the command line grep does.
[Lady_Aleena]: my scratchpad has what I have so far.
[choroba]: what do you mean by multiline?
[Discipulus]: thanks 1nickt!
[choroba]: grep is a filter, it selects elements from a list based on a boolean condition
[moritz]: you need to read the file in one go to do a multiline regex match
[erix]: ha ha, I like the Vigilante
[Lady_Aleena]: Forget it. I'm getting angry with it.
