in reply to Error when using dbmopen.

manage your %PATH% and associations so you're using the perl you want to use and not the other one, see %PATH% managment, see "help set" , "help ftype", "help assoc"

    Ok.

    I seem to have resolved the problems I indicated.

    The dbmopen issue was, it appears, the result of an untidy (to say the least) uninstall of Cygwin which left dozens of files scattered across my root folder, i.e., C:/. The DB_File question (this is embarrassing) could have been resolved much faster if I had simply asked google (please see below):

    http://code.activestate.com/ppm/DB_File/

    Since I am using a 32-bit Windows XP machine, the reason why I was unable to load the file and the repository I was using did not show it as being available was, alas, immediately obvious when I visited that link.

    Thanks.
