in reply to Perl modules in Win32

You can't use make because your version of Perl (and thus MakeMaker) is configured for use with nmake. The Makefile wants to use link but you probably only have ln. See Re: Installing modules on Win32 for more info.

So you don't need to use nmake, you need to reconfigure Perl to use the tools that you have. The easiest and only really supported way to configure this stuff is when you build Perl. But you can probably get away with reconfiguring by hand if you know what you are doing or don't mind learning what you are doing by trial and error and occasional research.

And, yes, you can probably use PPM because it sounds like you have ActivePerl. But there are plenty of modules that can't be installed with PPM because ActiveState hasn't bothered to produce a binary distribution for them.

[LanX]: for instance I tend to say (h)uman with a mute h, (no idea were I learned this think it's somehow BE), but when I met YM last year she was correcting me ... only to find out that new yorkes like Trump always pronouce it that way
[LanX]: both acceptable
[LanX]: Friend of my worked for an international cooperation in Singapore and said the guys with the biggest communication problems were the native speakers ... pointing out an australian guy who needed a year to notice that nobody understood him
[Eily]: ah yes, I've starting feeling more confident about my accent when I realised I'm always going to be pronuncing it wrong for someone anyway :)
[Eily]: started*
[ambrus]: LanX: native speakers are close, but they aren't on the top. there are a _few_ foreigners who have such a thick accent that it takes more time to get used to it and understand the words behind than even the worst native speaker accents.
[ambrus]: but yes, typically native English speakers, who think that English is still their exclusive property, are the worst.
[LanX]: Eily: do you live in an English speaking country?
