in thread Help With Perl SDL

"sudo" isn't recognized, it tells me. Anyways, whenever I run a program that uses SDL, it says that "SDL.pm" was not found in this folder, but then it keeps doing that error no matter how many files I add to wherever folder it wishes.


  • Windows Vista SP2
  • Latest Strawberry Perl
  • Padre IDE
  • SDL 2.54

      Looks to me that 'cpan install SDL' should work ok. Where does that come undone for you ?
      On my Strawberry perl-5.16.0, I actually installed Alien::SDL manually ('perl build.pl', 'perl build', 'perl build test', 'perl build install') then installed the Tie::Simple and Test::Most dependency chains ('cpan install Tie-Simple', 'cpan install Test-Most') and then manually built SDL.

      But the way it all worked suggested to me that I could have simply run 'cpan install SDL'. (I didn't do that because I was having trouble with my 'cpan install' and didn't work out how to fix it until I was half way thru with the manual installs.)

      The SDL test suite concluded with:
      Test Summary Report ------------------- t\core.t (Wstat: 0 Tests: 28 Failed: 0) TODO passed: 21-22 t\core_video.t (Wstat: 0 Tests: 110 Failed: 0) TODO passed: 57, 59 t\sdlx_fps.t (Wstat: 512 Tests: 13 Failed: 2) Failed tests: 6, 11 Non-zero exit status: 2 Files=59, Tests=3827, 287 wallclock secs ( 1.75 usr + 0.58 sys = 2.3 +3 CPU) Result: FAIL Failed 1/59 test programs. 2/3827 subtests failed.
      AFTERTHOUGHT: Of course, those failing tests will mean that you have to use force with the cpan install if you actually want it to be installed.

      Cheers,

        I do the command "cpan install SDL", and it tells me that SDL is already installed. I then fire up a Perl file that uses SDL, but the prompt still states that SDL files are missing.


        Anyways, I'll try those commands you used to install Alien::SDL manually.

          Like, copy/paste some error messages :)

          If you remove SDL.pm from your Strawberry installation, 'cpan -fi SDL' should then believe that SDL is not installed, and go about re-installing it in the correct manner.
          (I *think* '-fi' is the right way to 'force install' ... not entirely sure as I don't often use the cpan command.)

          I don't know how to copy the whole command prompt text, however here is the first line of the error:
          Can't locate object method "config" via package "Alien::SDL" in directory C:\strawberry\blah blah blah
