No offense but the whole idea of Perlmonks is to learn, rather than getting people to do it for you. I don't mind answering questions, even about how to compile but don't give up so easily. Besides I'm on dial-up and it creates several files all of which I'd have to track down and send to you.

Honestly its not that hard. If you open the readme file all you have to do (on Linux) is type 'make' and then 'make install' for a local installation in your home directory or 'make global_install' to install for the whole system as root. The later is probably what you want. If you aren't on Linux copy the appropriate 'Makefile.<your_os_name>' to just 'Makefile' and follow the same steps.

As for the IPC::Open3 you don't have to use it, you can use system(), I just found that it gave me more control. See Advanced Perl Programming for some good examples on how to do it.
