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

I had trouble getting GD to install on Strawberry. As in "I gave up". Other than that I am very fond of Strawberry.

I realise that it should be fairly easy to download the GD C library source and compile it, and then use it to build the XS component of GD. I fiddled around for a while and since I was pressed for time, I just installed the GD.ppm module for Activestate and generated the graphs I needed to generate.

In other words, AS and Strawberry coexist peacefully on the same machine, so you can always use both. Executing a particular perl binary by specifying its full path is sufficient for it to locate the libraries that belong to it. The question comes down to which one you wish to use by default when you run 'perl' from a DOS box. That just depends on your PATH setting.

    [choroba]: Unfortunately, none of it is online
    [haukex]: I figured that POD tests make sense, but only as author tests
    [choroba]: I mean, the slides are, but not the makefile with scripts to create them
    [Corion]: haukex: I've only now arrived at that revelation ;)
    [Corion]: choroba: I use spod5, which also has that support, and also implements its own kinda-make stuff
    [haukex]: But that module I just linked to assumes that most verbatim blocks are runnable code, I have other modules where that's not the case, so there I just copy-and-paste the synopsis into the author tests...
    [haukex]: not the most efficient, but then again, I don't have that many modules on CPAN :-)
    [Corion]: haukex: Yes, but if it's only supposed to run on my machine, I can be far more liberal with how I extract the code etc.
    [Corion]: haukex: Yes - I see the benefit of using Dist::Zilla for people with 150+ modules on CPAN, but I don't see it for myself, and I'm always put off from contributing to such modules because they require a lot of toolchain setup that I don't want to ...
    [Corion]: ... spend time on if I only want to provide a short patch
