in reply to Re^3: Install LWP::Protocol::https
in thread Install LWP::Protocol::https

My linux skills are not that strong so please bear with me.

I believe that OpenSSL is installed on Cygwin by default:

Heim@Heim-PC ~ $ openssl version OpenSSL 1.0.1e 11 Feb 2013 Heim@Heim-PC ~ $ which openssl /usr/bin/openssl Heim@Heim-PC ~ $

I'm not clear on where the file "openssl/ssl.h" should be found. Looking at the install instructions for Crypt::SSLeay, it looks like at least one environment variable is not set:"

Heim@Heim-PC ~ $ echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH Heim@Heim-PC ~ $

What should the path be set to? Is there anything else that I need to do?

Thanks, Edward

    I believe that OpenSSL is installed on Cygwin by default:

    Um, so when you use Windows+F "file finder" to search your cygwin directory, where do you find ssl.h?


    forget about this, its got nothing to do with missing headers

      Sorry for not being clear: I didn't have the ssl.h header file. I found that I had to re-install Cygwin with the "OpenSSL development environment". I now find the header file at


      Are there any environment variables that I need to setup?

      Thanks, Edward

[marto]: my out of working hours time is very scarce at the moment
[marto]: unfortunately for you guys I can still access PM during the day :P
[Corion]: marto: Ow, I hope that gets better soonish! But I feel some $work-timecrunch looming at my $work as well
[Corion]: marto: Ah, so you can multiplex work and PM time ;-D
[Corion]: The upside to this is that I've reduced my $work (well, $paid) time to 80%, so I'll be at $work only four days/week, which will hopefully make the crunch less crunchy on me ;)
[marto]: yeah, so that stays as before. But before the boys were born I'd be on quite often at night (GMT) also
