FINALLY.......!!

I finally got my script running using Gtk2... I was on vacation last week so I hadn't looked at any of
this since a little over a week ago and maybe my PC needed a vacation too, cause now its working ha...

In my previous post I posted code for a script that installs the necessary Modules needed for Gtk2.
The problem I was having was that the Dependency packages needed would fail every single time I would
try installing them. So today I deleted EVERYTHING perl related from my PC and uninstalled "Strawberry"
Perl, (*which is what I'm using now)...

After uninstalling Perl (*5.12 I think) and then reinstalling the most recent Strawberry Perl
version (*5.18)I began installing the necessary Modules one by one using CPAN up until I hit
this ExtUtils::MakeMaker Module, which refused to install nicely... So I tried using "force install"
and was finally able to get that one installed.

After that Module in the list I had more issues installing the other modules using cpan, so I decided to try
ppm which then installed the remaining Modules without any issues at all...


So now I'm going to try to use the pp (*i.e. the Par::Packer) Utility/Module to package up the script
into an executable so I don't have to go through the same hell I went through to get this installed on my XP Virtual
Machine... Or if its easier (*Not sure would have to try it out first) I'll try the CavaPackager program which
looks like it runs as a GUI, so maybe that's easier... Not sure yet though.

Any advice for which Perl "Packager" would be best or if there's anything I need to know before I give it a try?
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!


Thanks AGAIN,
Matt

    As I've said before, I personally have never used Cava Packager, so I can't offer an opinion on whether it is good or bad. I have seen others recommend it in posts on this site. In my personal experience, I have not had any issues using the pp utility from PAR::Packer to create executables.

    If you use the pp utility, be sure to read the documentation. You'll probably want the -x option and might want to read about the --gui option.

    From my perspective, it looks like you have a choice of two tools to use. Go with the one that both gets the job done and that you're comfortable using.
