My end goal is to install Net::POP3 on my Windows machine, but Perl Package Manager does not have it available (not sure why).
So, I tried to install via CPAN. But then I saw that it wasn't able to find nmake. CPAN returned this error:
'nmake' is not recognized as an internal or external command
I went to look for nmake, but I found that provided links to Microsoft download were broken, and that it seems that you have to install some very large package of software to get it. And I am not sure which package.
So I tried to use dmake instead. It is installed, but still when I run install Net::POP3 it is trying to use nmake.
Is there some way to force CPAN to use dmake instead? I have entered the relevant path in the PATH env variable.
