Trouble Installing HTML::Parser on MacOS X

djantzen has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I've got 5.8.1 installed in the default locations set by Apple, but cannot get CPAN to install HTML::Parser and friends.

Logged in as root, I do the standard perl -MCPAN -e 'shell', and install HTML::Parser. I notice that it's complaining about not finding /usr/local/lib. Weird that it can't create the directories it requires since I'm root, but whatever, I create it manually. Now the error looks like this:

Checking if your kit is complete... Looks good Writing Makefile for HTML::Parser cp lib/HTML/ blib/lib/HTML/ cp lib/HTML/ blib/lib/HTML/ cp blib/lib/HTML/ cp lib/HTML/ blib/lib/HTML/ cp lib/HTML/ blib/lib/HTML/ cp lib/HTML/ blib/lib/HTML/ cp lib/HTML/ blib/lib/HTML/ /usr/bin/perl /System/Library/Perl/5.8.1/ExtUtils/xsubpp -typemap /Sy +stem/Library/Perl/5.8.1/ExtUtils/typemap -typemap typemap Parser.xs +> Parser.xsc && mv Parser.xsc Parser.c /usr/bin/perl mkhctype >hctype.h /usr/bin/perl mkpfunc >pfunc.h cc -c -g -pipe -pipe -fno-common -DPERL_DARWIN -no-cpp-precomp -fno- +strict-aliasing -I/usr/local/include -Os -DVERSION=\"3.36\" -DXS_VE +RSION=\"3.36\" "-I/System/Library/Perl/5.8.1/darwin-thread-multi-2le +vel/CORE" -DMARKED_SECTION Parser.c Running Mkbootstrap for HTML::Parser () chmod 644 rm -f blib/arch/auto/HTML/Parser/Parser.bundle LD_RUN_PATH="" MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.3 cc -bundle -undefined dy +namic_lookup -L/usr/local/lib Parser.o -o blib/arch/auto/HTML/Parser +/Parser.bundle ld: can't locate file for: -lbundle1.o make: *** [blib/arch/auto/HTML/Parser/Parser.bundle] Error 1 /usr/bin/make -- NOT OK Running make test Can't test without successful make Running make install make had returned bad status, install seems impossible

Any suggestions? Thanks, djantzen

    did you install it in the same location as apple? If not your problem may be that your 5.6 modules have to be recompiled for 5.8.

    Did you get this fixed at all?

    I was hoping you did because I'm having the same problem. Even more annoyingly it's happening on the home machine but not the work machine...

    There is an OSX/Perl mailing list which has proved very helpful before now, but I don't have the details to hand...

    OK I found the mailing list and almost instantly got help. has the fix, apparently, I haven't been able to test yet.

    Short answer, the version of cc is wrong, and changing

    ld='env MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.3 cc'
    in /System/Library/Perl/5.8.1/darwin-thread-multi-2level/ is the fix, or possibly changing it in the Makefile?

    Anyway, HTH. You should be able to find sign-up instructions for the list via that link.

    =~y~b-v~a-z~s; print

      Jeez, did I take long enough to respond? :) The fix suggested on that list didn't help even a little bit. But I found last night when trying to compile nmap that my C compiler was unable to create an executable. Given that my previous attempts to compile modules utilizing C components failed when trying to find the output files from the C compilation, I think the problem was in general an inability to create object files.

      In any case, I upgraded my version of Xcode Tools to 1.5 and now everything is working perfectly.
