in thread How to install GD.pm?

Apologies, but I thought the title to be misleading as the actual text implied to me that the OP was asking about installing libgd not GD.pm.

I was unaware that GD.pm includes libgd in it's distribution, as that also isn't clear from Lincoln's README file. Or is this just for Win32 distributions? As it happens the OP can simply use your module and install via PPM. However, that wasn't clear from your post.

Did you look at the repositories referenced in PPM::Repositories

Yes, I use your module regularly. But how does that list imply that GD.pm includes the binary distribution of libgd for Win32?

    Woohoo!

    No it doesn't (it's too big).
    and install via PPM. However, that wasn't clear from your post.
    That's the idea ( A guide to installing modules demonstrates that strategy). I didn't get the impression the OP wanted libgd, he just wanted the perl interface to work, and the path of least resistance is ppm.

    MJD says "you can't just make shit up and expect the computer to know what you mean, retardo!"
    I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).
