You have to install it manually. Download the tarball from CPAN, put it in a directory of its own, untar it, and then run the install process. Everything you need will be in the file that you untarred, so you're not going through CPAN for this. Also, you're not building a customized wxWidgets, so there's no linking involved. Get it a try. If you have any problems, come back here.

    Khen1950fx: apologizing if this is a newbie question:
    When I inquire for Module::Build (in CPANPLUS), I get:

    So I have Module::Build installed.
    But, like I mentioned above, when I go:

    >perl Build.PL
    Can't open perl script "Build.PL": No such file or directory
    It can't find "Build.PL".
    What to do?

    Many TIA - Helen

      Can't open perl script "Build.PL": No such file or directory

      This means that Perl can't find a file named Build.PL within your current directory. Are you sure you're in the right place? If you do an ls/dir do you see Build.PL?

      cpan> look Alien::wxWidgets

      If in doubt the above command within cpan will download the module and drop you into a shell within the unpacked distribution. You can then do what you want (install notes in README.txt?). To exit this shell type exit.

      Update: I see you're using cpanp rather than cpan. Use the z argument to achieve the same as above:

      z MODULE ... # extract module(s) and open command prompt in it

      Update 2: fixed typo.

      update 3: added link to README.txt
