in thread What version of Strawberry Perl to use?

????, I'm using Win32:SystemInfo, what has that to do with Win32::API?

Anyway I'm using the latest version of Perl now, I still couldn't install Win32::SystemInfo via Cpan as normal user or admin (windows) and than I used:

force install Win32:SystemInfo

That worked! I don't know if that was the way to go, or why suddenly this problem with this module is there?

Any way when I use example code of the cpan page with this module the call failes:

Can't use string ("Win32::API::Struct") as a HASH ref while "strict re +fs" in use at C:/strawberry/perl/vendor/lib/Win32 PI/ line 158.

After I run

my %mHash = (TotalPhys => 0, AvailPhys => 0, MemLoad => 0); if (Win32::SystemInfo::MemoryStatus(%mHash))

What is a quick way to get around this problem and can use this module again, like it worked before, should I open a new node?

Log In?

What's my password?
Create A New User
Node Status?
node history
Node Type: note [id://1017953]
and all is quiet...
