in reply to Compile PERL from source on Windows

When it comes to nmake test, it keeps failing with this:

Two thoughts:

  1. This is test code that is failing -- as opposed to the code being tested failing -- so comment out the test and move on.
  2. Looking at CPAN there is a 5.16.3 available; maybe the problem was noticed early and fixed; so get the later version and try again.
I did notice that there wasn't a perldelta.pod in the tar ball.

Even more reason to go with 2) above. You are wasting your time trying to fix a broken tarball when there is a later version that probably fixes it for you.

      I agree, perldelta.pod comes with the tarball; it isn't generated automatically. Something is wrong with the tarball or an incomplete extraction if that file is missing.

      The OP says it is missing, I cannot examine his filesystem.

      Seems unlikely that a broken download would result in a good compile and a single missing file; but maybe he looked in the wrong place.

    Okay... I'll try with .13. A little swamped at the office today though.
      I meant 16.3... oops
