( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Revered Monks,

I simply have no words to thank you all for your eagerness to help and provide so much useful information.

The modules I will mostly end up using are:

Net::SSH2 Excel::Writer::XLSX Config::Tiny MIME::Lite List::MoreUtils

kschwab, yes you are right. Win32::SerialPort does indeed fail. On both 32 and 64 bit versions of Perl 5.18. Output given below is for 64 bit, but it's the same for 32 bit. I don't need that module (atleast as of now), but just wanted to see what I get when I try to install it. I have downloaded Strawberry Perl Version (Portable Version) which was released just a few days ago and was eager to try it out. May be, the module expects something to be connected to the serial port, or may be, the module is not able to see a serial port and hence it fails.
C:\perl64_51822>cpanm Win32::SerialPort --> Working on Win32::SerialPort Fetching +.22.tar.gz ... OK Configuring Win32-SerialPort-0.22 ... N/A ! Configure failed for Win32-SerialPort-0.22. See C:\PERL64~1\data\.cp +anm\work\1397846877.6344\build.log for details.

And this is what the log file says
