Dear monks, please offer some help to a confused novice.
I'm coding on a Mac, and I need to make some simple 3D visualisations. So I came across this nice looking tutorial (http://www.perl.com/pub/a/2004/12/01/3d_engine.html)
which uses SDL. Now, I'm not used to all that messy techie stuff, so I don't know how to get that to work. I've found a download of SDL.pm (http://search.cpan.org/dist/SDL_Perl/lib/SDL.pm), and it had a bunch of files that I don't know what to do with. I also tried using MacPorts ("sudo port install p5-sdl_perl") and it prints a long list of dependencies which failed to build.
What to do? And, by the way, should I rather be making my 3Ds some other way instead?
