|laziness, impatience, and hubris|
Two weeks and two computer crashes later (on my other computer), here i am. My reasons for using Windows have been re-assessed, and i will simply stop and go back to Linux.
I have made a bit more effort to install Devel::Pragma though, in case it will help someone with the same problem.
First, gendef was not installed on my computer and i wasn't told during B::Hooks::OP::Annotation installation. Whose reponsibility was it to tell me? Can i/should i send a bug report somewhere?
So, i installed it and did what you said. Now the "libAnnotation.a bug" is fixed! Thank you!
But i encounter a new obstacle: chmod doesn't always work in Cygwin. It is explained here, as well as a way to fix it: http://cygwin.com/faq/faq-nochunks.html#faq.using.chmod.
But for people like me who don't know these technicalities, there are 3-4 pages documentation that you have to read, if you want to fix chmod. I just don't have the time now, as i'm going back to Linux. I think that this kind of information should be included in this page:
In reply to Re^4: Investigating Devel::Pragma's broken install on Cygwin, need help to fix it. ExtUtils::Depends possibly guilty??
