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

Howdy Bros. I am having headaches trying to get WordNet::QueryData installed via CPAN. When I run the install I get the following in the test section:
Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at blib\lib/ +WordNet/ line 357. (repeated 5x) Couldn't open data file index.noun at blib\lib/WordNet/ li +ne 653 NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe' : return code + '0x2' Stop. JRENNIE/WordNet-QueryData-1.49.tar.gz nmake test -- NOT OK (hint about looking at testers results) Running make install make text had returned bad status, won't install without force
I have WNHOME set to c:\Program Files\WordNet\2.1 as (I think) it's supposed to be.

Anyone know how to fix?

[Discipulus]: i have a different opinion: automation is always worth: first i can use Perl (and this is good), then later you can reuse parts to automate others tasks. My $boss everytime say:'how much time you spend doing this?' So generally i present a perl solution
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yes, but the chart gives some limits on whether it's really worth spending time for saving your time. If you gain enjoyment, automating is still great, but it doesn't save time ;)
[Discipulus]: Corion are you would able to realize such thing? O_O
[Corion]: In the same vein I have a script that automates Firefox to enter some data into another system. It's not faster than the people using the script if they were to do it manually, but they prefer not having to check the data and not having typos when ...
[Corion]: ... entering the data
[Corion]: Discipulus: I don't know whether I could really do that, but the init process itself mostly launches other processes, and the whole startup is just following a path of dependencies and making sure they are all running. Which basically is what ...
