in thread Help With Perl SDL

I do the command "cpan install SDL", and it tells me that SDL is already installed

If you remove 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.)
