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

Hi Monks,

I'm trying to get PDL-2.4.2 running on my windows XP SP2 box. (Perl 5.8.6; Platform SDK 3790.1830; .NET framework 1.1; .NET framework SDK 1.1; Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit 2003; Absoft Fortran 9.0; NMake 7.00.8882; cygwin (downloaded today)).

I've installed all the needed packages (and some extra's):
Astro::FITS::Header
ExtUtils::77
Inline
Filter
Text::Balanced
File::Spec
POD

I've already changed the lines in Basic\Core\pdlcore.c to:
((char*)pptr)+pdl->dimincs[pdl->ndims-1-plevel]* i * pdl_howbig(pdl->d +atatype)

I also made the changes as indicated in the install file delivered with the PDL package:
cd Basic\Core nmake Core.xs del getdev.pl # this one is important, otherwise you get + # a circular Makefile dependence! cd ..\.. perl Makefile.PL # with F77CONF=win32/win32f77.pl if you # want slatec nmake

After installing it all the way, I get an error in the final stage:

Error when running nmake test for the first time:

    Hi,

    Can you add a readmore tag? It is quite a long post. - nevermind. I spoke too soon and should have used consider

    Thanks :)

    Update: Didn't know about consider. Now I do. :)

    Did you check to see if:

    • Absoft's command line interface is named "f77"
    • and it's in your path?

    One of the worst problems I find with Windows is that using any kind of command line app quickly gets to be a major pain in the a**neck.

    emc

      I find with Windows is that using any kind of command line app quickly gets to be a major pain

      If the command name is mis-spelt, or not in the path under unix, it would also have problems locating it. Why is this any worse under Windows?

      Come to that, if the command name is F77.exe, but the user/batch file invokes it as 'f77', Windows will still run it, if it is locatable, so if anything, it is slightly easier.

      In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
      F77??? My keyboard only goes up to F12!!!
        lol... F77 = Fortran 77

      Absoft's command line interface is indeed called "f77".
      I also set my path correct.
      But fellow monk Madcap Laughs gave the solution to this problem on the site he mentioned.
      Thanks thou.

    Just call me eagle eye
    C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe -MExtUtils::Command -e cp pdl blib\script\pdl
    pl2bat.bat blib\script\pdl
    pl2bat.bat: Can't open blib\script\pdl: No such file or directory at C:\Perl\bin\pl2bat.bat line 101.
    So you just do a  echo #>pdl and you're done :)

    I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).
    ** The third rule of perl club is a statement of fact: pod is sexy.

      Amazing! It works.

      Do you know why it works? (since it is an empty file you put in place).

      Thanks.
