in thread nMake Error

Thanks tachyon

that really helped. I downloaded cl.exe and link.exe to be able to execute the nmake command. However an error occured during link particularly

link -out:..\blib\arch\auto\Template\Stash\XS\XS.dll -dll -nologo -nodefaultlib -debug -opt:ref,icf -libpath:"C:\Perl\lib\CORE" -machine:x86 Stash.obj C:\Perl\lib\CORE\perl158.lib oldnames.lib kernel32.lib user32.lib gdi32.lib winspool.lib comdlg32.lib advapi.lib shell32.lib ole32.lib oleaut32.lib netapi32.lib uuid.lib wsock32.lib.mpr.lib winm.lib version.lib odbc32.lib odbc32.lib msvcrt.lib -def:XS.def LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file "Stash.obj" NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'C:\WINNT\system32\cmd.exe' : return code '0x49d' Stop. NAMKE : fatal error U1077: 'C:\WINNT\system32\cmd.exe' : return code '0x2' Stop.

Did I do something wrong? Did I download the correct cl.exe and link.exe? Or is there something wrong with the Template-Toolkit module i downloaded?

Thanks

    I recommend you use a precompiled binary - you can find a ppm here If you want to compile it yourself read this tutorial I put up a year or two ago: A Practical Guide to Compiling C based Modules under ActiveState using Microsoft C++. Note that as well as cl.exe and link.exe you also need all the header and library files, in the right spots, with the correct ENV vars set of cl will choke. To give you an idea we commonly use a compact version of VCC with just cl, the linkers, assemblers and the header and library files. It is 18MB zipped (70MB odd unzipped). This is a lot better than VCC which is 2GB for a full install and takes several hours.

    FWIW It installs perfectly (just tested it on a Win32 box) you just need a working compiler setup

      Thanks tachyon

      I was able to successfully add the Template-Toolkit module using ppm.

[ambrus]: erix: that one actually sucks. these days people should get rid of the old notion that TeX is the only thing you can use for decent mathematics writing, because MS Office and LibreOffice have reached the
[ambrus]: level where people can more easily write as good mathematical papers in them as the people who write bad LaTeX papers usually write.
[ambrus]: Yes, for like the first twenty of its years, TeX was basically the only system that allowed you to write decent maths papers, and C++ and PHP were programming languages that sucked, etc. But times change and people have to accept that.
Discipulus bad people + good tool < normal people + decent tool
[Discipulus]: php does not suck anymore?
[ambrus]: Discipulus: I'm not sure, but it certainly doesn't suck as much as it's used to. it's like C++, it sucks because people still recursively learn from twenty year old PHP examples,
[ambrus]: and they try to use the obsolete features that PHP has to support only for compatibility with old scripts. C++ and PHP both have the problem that people can't forget the past, because when they google "PHP" plus the problme they want to solve, they find b
[ambrus]: ad code examples.
[ambrus]: I'm not trying to recommend PHP, but I think it has way too bad a name because of its past.
