in reply to Installing Template::Toolkit on Windows

Smells like ActiveState's Perl. You essentially have two options other then messing around with a wild mix of PPMs provided by ActiveState and others and modules from CPAN:

  • Install MinGW via PPM, this is said to give you a working C compiler
  • Get rid of ActiveState's Perl and use Strawberry Perl, that comes preconfigured with a working C compiler, linker etc., and behaves as much as a Perl on a Unix system as possible.

I've switched from AS to SP long ago, and never regretted it. I also (ab-)use SP to just get a free, working C compiler and linker for Windows.
