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

I have done the proxy setting on the cpan using these commands, still i am not able to install modules
o conf http_proxy o conf proxy_user XYZ o conf proxy_pass **** o conf commit cpan> install Net::Netmask Running install for module 'Net::Netmask' Running make for M/MU/MUIR/modules/Net-Netmask-1.9015.tar.gz Checksum for C:\Perl\cpan\sources\authors\id\M\MU\MUIR\modules\Net-Net +mask-1.901 5.tar.gz ok Net-Netmask-1.9015/ Net-Netmask-1.9015/Netmask.pod Net-Netmask-1.9015/META.yml Net-Netmask-1.9015/t/ Net-Netmask-1.9015/t/sortspeed-blocks.t Net-Netmask-1.9015/t/netmasks.t Net-Netmask-1.9015/t/badnets.t Net-Netmask-1.9015/t/sortspeed-ip.t Net-Netmask-1.9015/ Net-Netmask-1.9015/CHANGELOG Net-Netmask-1.9015/MANIFEST Net-Netmask-1.9015/Makefile.PL Net-Netmask-1.9015/README Going to build M/MU/MUIR/modules/Net-Netmask-1.9015.tar.gz It looks like you don't have a C compiler and make utility installed. + Trying to install dmake and the MinGW gcc compiler using the Perl Package Man +ager. This may take a a few minutes... ppm.bat install failed: Can't find any package that provides MinGW It looks like the installation of dmake and MinGW has failed. You wil +l not be able to run Makefile commands or compile C extension code. Please che +ck your internet connection and your proxy settings! Checking if your kit is complete... Looks good Writing Makefile for Net::Netmask 'nmake' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. MUIR/modules/Net-Netmask-1.9015.tar.gz nmake -- NOT OK Running make test Can't test without successful make Running make install Make had returned bad status, install seems impossible Failed during this command: MUIR/modules/Net-Netmask-1.9015.tar.gz : make NO

    Exit cpan. Run PPM from the command prompt and type:

    install mingw

    This will install everything you should need. Exit PPM and restart cpan.

      When i type PPM from command promt, it opens a seperate PPM window and 'install mingw' doesnt work there...


        c:\>ppm-shell ppm> install mingw

        Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
        "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
        In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

        From the command prompt try:

        c:\ppm install MinGW
        You can, however, search for the mingw-package and install it.
        I have same problems..

    You don't need mingw or anything else.

    just run this in your cmd windows: ppm install Net-Netmask and you're done.

      You're awesome, this solved my problem instantly =)
