in reply to HowTo build and distribute a PPMed module for Win32

The following blatherings have been on my homenode a while, for lack of a better place to put them.   This thread looks like a good home.   8^P
    striving toward Perl Adept

Diary of a frustrated !(AS|PPM) Perl install on Win2k

  1. Retrieve and install Siemens' precompiled 5.00503 binary for win32.
  2. Edit d:\perl\5.00503\lib\MSWin32-x86\ to reflect installed drive letter if not default "C" (thanks to OeufMayo, Yohimbe)
  3. Retrieve and install pmake.
    • perl Makefile.PL
    • perl -I. pmake
    • perl -Mblib pmake test
    • perl -Mblib pmake install
  4. Copy to d:\perl\site\500503\lib\
  5. Install pure-Perl CPAN modules.
    • perl Makefile.PL
    • pmake.bat
    • pmake.bat test
    • pmake.bat install

    • Tie::IxHash - succeed
    • Net::Telnet - succeed
    • Term::ReadKey - <font size="-1">fail
    • Net::Telnet::Cisco - fail
  6. Keep digging - shouldn't have to manually copy .pm files to d:\perl\site\500503\lib\ ?!
  7. Continue pondering free(beer|speech) compilers for modules containing C/C++.
  8. from crazyinsomniac, but I've not got this far:
    • MM_Win32 UNINSTALL= $(Perl)... line doesn't appear to be valid perl syntaxt...
    • The \"\" stuff and also multiple -e switches...
    • Replace the \"\" with qq()...
    • Make needs the \ at the end of the line...
  9. Give up.   Install ActivePerl instead.
  10. Try again later.   Maybe.   If I get bored and ambitious

    Figures! I go to your home node often, yet managed to miss this somehow ... prob. in a fit of self-imporance ... ~sigh~

    I've never played w/ the Siemens' precompiled 5.00503 binary. In spite of my problems in the past with AS, it's still my Win32 perl of choice - at least since core perl merged into AS ... or the other way around ...

    Anywho, good to know. If Tutorials allows editing of root nodes, I'd like to modify mine post to specify AS better.

[ambrus]: Corion: I think I parsed a HTTP header from a string with LWP once. You can definitely use that to create a HTTP message too. The problme is
[ambrus]: that if you do that, you'd have to find where each HTTP response ends, which is nontrivial if you want persistent connections (essential for performance if you have small requests).
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, ideally an API that I feed the incoming data piece by piece and that I can ask "is that response done" and "what should I do next" and "please construct the appropriate redirect for me"
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, ideally the module would do all that nasty stuff for me and give me a way to ask it what the current situation is
[ambrus]: Corion: you could also consider using some wrapper over the multi interface of curl, I think Net::Curl might be a good one, since implementing enough of what it expects from the event loop might be easier than a full AnyEvent interface.
[ambrus]: Corion: you could also consider using IO::Async and its POE driver and some HTTP module for it, but I don't know if that would solve your problems with AnyEvent+POE
[ambrus]: Corion: wait, you didn't say POE. You said Prima, let me look up what that is.
[ambrus]: Corion: have you considered just writing an AnyEvent integration for that thing?
[ambrus]: Or perhaps pushing schmorp to write one?
[ambrus]: Also, searching for an existing one on CPAN obviously
