in reply to Perl modules in Windows


There are several ways to add modules, depending upon what the module is.

If it only contains Perl code then you can download it from CPAN and install it manually or use the CPAN shell as normal. You will need to get hold of nmake.exe from Microsoft first.

If it needs compiling then you need to get a compiler, or get some one else to complie it for you, and then install via ActiveState's PPM tool. Be aware than their PPM repository is only a sub-set of CPAN, and is often out of date. However you can also use PPM to install modules from other PPM Repositories.

One final option is to install Cygwin and use the version of Perl in there, and you will be able to install most things from CPAN as normal.
