Module Installation Related: MAKE and NMAKEby OxYgEn (Acolyte)
|on Mar 08, 2004 at 02:36 UTC||Need Help??|
OxYgEn has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I previously made a post about some trouble I was having with installing modules. Well, I finally figured out how to do it with ActivePerl's PPM command, but it's very inconvenient, and since I downloaded this CYGWIN and NMAKE I'd like to understand how to use it
On the module installation post, several people told me I needed to use the make command on CYGWIN to get it to work. Well, when I do this it tells me there is no make command. And when I open NMAKE, this is what I get
PKSFX (R) FAST! Self Extract Utility Version 2.04g 02-01-93 Copr. 1989-1993 PKWARE Inc. All Rights Reserved. Shareware version
PKSFX Reg. U.S. Pat. and Tm. Off.
Searching EXE: C:/DOCUME~1/GREG/DESKTOP/GBA/NMAKE15.EXE PKSFX: (W18) Warning! NMAKE.ERR already exists. Overwrite (y/n)?
And when I type y, it just prints the same thing again and I can type y or n as many times as I like and it will keep going. Could someone please explain to me what I'm doing?
Thanks a lot,
