( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm trying to install Net::Pcap on a Windows XP system using Strawberry Perl. I have installed the win pcap developer library, I have directed the command line to the include and library files. the Makefile.pl command executes just fine. But when I try to dmake, dmake test, and dmake install - I get errors and it fails. I've tried using versions 0.04, 0.05, and 0.16. All with the same results. I've used dmake realclean in between trials, still doesn't help. One error is: "C:\WpdPack\Include\remote.txt.h:39:2: error: #error Please do not include this file directly. Just define HAVE_REMOTE and then include pcap.h" Another error is: "dmake: Error code 129, while making Pcap.o" Two other warnings are also present. What can I do? Trying to code a network sniffing program to monitor data transmission. Any help is GREATLY appreciated - this is my third day of trying to find a work around.
