in reply to Win32 on HTML::Tidy

At the risk of being pedantic, if you were looking at the tests on the Activestate site, Perl modules requiring external programs for their functionality will show that they fail. This is because Activestate has automated the module installation process and installs the modules on a plain Windows installation with no other programs installed.

In many cases, if you can get the requisite software installed, you can then install the module in question using the techniques listed in A Guide to Installing Modules.

Often times, once the module is installed, others will create a PPM and make it available (as is the case in this discussion with the Bribes repository).

Just a little back ground that may or may not be helpful.

[stevieb]: choroba just gleaned your post about Module::Starter. I use it too, pretty much for every dist I write
[LanX]: I remeber M::S (it was dialog driven?) to be buggy
[stevieb]: As far as Dist::Zilla goes, I don't like installing that other than on systems my test platorm runs on. I find it too heavy. I prefer being able to glean a Makefile.PL
[LanX]: what's frustrating me is that a distribution has lots of dupplicated info
[stevieb]: LanX I don't know if it's dialog driven; I just use it in the simplest of terms (just run module-starter at the CLI, and the very last couple of lines are how I use it.
[stevieb]: which dist are you speaking of regarding dups, LanX?
[LanX]: readme version number and so on ...
[stevieb]: with M::S, you can also add other tags, but defaults work... such as --license=perl --eumm
