Building Math-GSL-0.07 on Win32 (MinGW compiler)by syphilis (Chancellor)
|on Aug 01, 2008 at 14:00 UTC||Need Help??|
syphilis has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
By my antiquated standards, if the source to this module was properly written, building this module would be as easy as:
But the days of such simplicity are long gone - and it's probably time for me to adjust to the complexity and frustration of Module::Build and its co-obfuscators. So ... let's start with the output of running 'perl Build.PL':
Where do I go from there ?
Line 265 of Build.PL is:
I have (a static build of) gsl-1.11. The gsl includes are in C:/_32/msys/1.0/local/include/gsl and libgsl.a is in C:/_32/msys/1.0/local/lib.
Any help appreciated. I promise to try to refrain from the use of expletives during the course of this thread, but I can't guarantee that I'll succeed in meeting that objective. Frankly, when I see that perl Build.PL output, it just makes my blood boil.
