Rendered by the Chatterbox XML Ticker the cpan is actually supposed to install the whole package but as it was unable to download the proper package i had to edit it seems legit That is the great advantage of the Makefile - it's easy to modify :) yes..and could you please tell me what are the files that are actually required by the pbc? apparently the Devel::CheckLib was used to check the files existance and i couldn't figure out what type of files it is looking for
