in thread Help With Perl SDL

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.)

      force doesn't care if its installed already -- it might care about the prerequisites though :)

    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
      Can't locate object method "config" via package "Alien::SDL" in directory C:\strawberry

      I didn't strike that one. During the 'perl build.pl' step of the Alien::SDL installation, I was presented with 3 options regarding which SDL package to use.
      Did that happen for you ?
      Which option did you take ? (I took the first.)

      To copy'n'paste to/from a cmd.exe shell, click on the little cmd icon that's top left of the cmd.exe window. Then select "Properties", then tick "Quick Edit".
      Then you'll be able to select, copy , and paste using the mouse in the usual way.

      Cheers,
      Rob

        I also chose the first option


        Got it now:
        Can't locate object method "config" via package "Alien::SDL" at C:/str +awberry/Dw inperl/perl/site/lib/SDL/Internal/Loader.pm line 34. Compilation failed in require at SDL.pm line 42. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at SDL.pm line 42. Compilation failed in require at sdl.pl line 6. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at sdl.pl line 6. Press any key to continue . . .
