All I want to know is this: Where can I get LWP.pm?

Please no .gz or .tr files!

    If you're using ActiveState Perl on Windows, visit the PPM page to learn about the Perl Package Manager. It will make your life easier by installing pre-compiled modules for you.

    The corresponding Unix command line is: perl -MCPAN -e shell Then, type: install Bundle::LWP and things will work for you straightaway. Building modules on your own is like writing your own kernel, except not as much.

    I need it for CGI programming, and I don't have unix. Someone else please?
      Do you have Windows, then? As chromatic suggested, head to the PPM page. You can install a pre-compiled binary of LWP.

      If you have a Mac, check out cpan-mac, which has Mac ports of a bunch of modules (including LWP).

    Yes, PPM is a good way to do things with the ActiveState perl.

    The main thing this is good for is modules which require 'make' and/or a C compiler to build.

    OTOH, If you want to use funky modules which don't need a C compiler, get a copy of WinZip (http://www.winzip.com) or, although it might be a bit Unixy, GNU tar (http://www.gnu.org).
    They both understand .gz and .tar files just fine.

    You can then pull out the .pm files you need and move them over to your site directory.

      But i din't find any place in tat link PPM. Please gimme a link where i can download LWP for windows.
        Hi,
        If you have ActivePerl then you should already have LWP:
        C:\>perl -MLWP -le "print $LWP::VERSION" 5.825
        Anyway, to answer your question ... to install LWP via ppm:
        ppm install libwww-perl
        Cheers,
        Rob
