Problem Installing DBD::Informix on Windows 7 using AS Perl 5.8.9

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

I am having trouble installing DBD::Informix on Windows 7 with AS Perl 5.8.9. I ran super search but did not find anything that addressed the error I received.

Here are my installation steps:

1. Downloaded and installed Microsoft Visual C++ Express 2010 2. Downloaded and installed Developer edition of Informix (version 11 +.70) Note: Step 3 creates the Informix database required to install and + test DBD::Informix. The README file refers to the 'stores' databa +se, but the demo database creation script in the Informix bin di +rectory creates 'stores_demo@ol_informix1170'. Step 4 sets environment variables to point to this database. 3. Ran C:\PROGRA~2\IBM\Informix\11.70\bin\dbaccessdemo.cmd which crea +ted the following demo database: stores_demo@ol_informix1170 4. Set the following environment variables to point to the stores_dem +o@ol_informix1170 database: set DBI_DBNAME=stores_demo@ol_informix1170 set DBD_INFORMIX_DATABASE=stores_demo@ol_informix1170 5. Set the following other environment variables: set INFORMIXDIR=C:\PROGRA~2\IBM\Informix\11.70 set REGMACHINE=\\SPEEDY5 set INFORMIXSERVER=ol_informix1170 set ONCONFIG=onconfig.ol_informix1170 set PATH=C:\PROGRA~2\IBM\Informix\11.70\bin;C:\Windows\syswow6 +4;%path% 6. Ran cpanm DBD::Informix. It failed on the INFORMIXC line (see foll +owing excerpt of build log): . .

      According to AS this module has not passed its tests.

      Nonsense, that is not what the log says at all , it says

      *** You didn't read the README file! No executable ESQL/C compiler found in $PATH

      Very similar to what the op gets

      'INFORMIXC' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
        I have already worked through the "You didn't read the README file! No executable ESQL/C compiler found in $PATH" message. I do have an executable ESQL/C compiler in my path. The error I'm getting is because an invalid line is being generated (i.e., INFORMIXC='C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe esqlld' ESQLLD=..) which is not a valid command. I need to find out where/how this line is generated and how to correct it.

        "Its not how hard you work, its how much you get done."

        I did read the log. When ever I debug a module running under AS, I always look to the AS site to see if the module has been tested. If it has not then I know I might have issues, if it has failed then I know I will have issues. Once armed with these details I know what to look for...

    Calling all C programmers! After resolving the "'INFORMIXC' is not recognized as an internal or exter command" issue, the problem has boiled down to compile errors (unresolved external symbols). I need to get past the compile and link errors produced by nmake so I can do an nmake install and start using DBD::Informix, but it's been over 15 years since I worked with C. Any help would be most apprecidated. Here is the output from my latest attempt at running nmake.The "unresolved" error messages are at the bottom:

      Somewhere in the headers for sqltype.ec/sqltype.c (what is a .ec?) you are missing a declaration for snprintf. How I diagnose this is the following, you need to create a .i post preprocessor file. For most CPAN modules a "nmake nameofCfile.i" will make a .i. Then, this is optional but recommended so your eyes dont bleed, send the .i file through a C code formatter, I use http://universalindent.sourceforge.net/. Then open the .i file in a code editor, for a search for ALL mentions of snprintf (the function name). For a typical CPAN module using my VS 2003, I got the following for snprintf.

      The lack of the header declaration, and that ALONE, is what caused the "assuming extern returning int" error. My VS 2008 also doesn't have a snprintf. The problem now is, do we get a snprintf? comment out where it is used? Write one from scratch? write a dummy that just returns? copy paste from another FOSS project? find an equivalent under another name? look for an undocumented MS CRT DLL export?

      First lets look and see if the Perl interp has a work around. Grepping /Windows search the perl interp source code, reveals this line, win32/win32.h#l207 in perl.git
      196 #ifdef _MSC_VER /* Microsoft Visual C++ */ 197 198 #ifndef UNDER_CE 199 typedef long uid_t; 200 typedef long gid_t; 201 typedef unsigned short mode_t; 202 #endif 203 204 #pragma warning(disable: 4102) /* "unreferenced label" */ 205 206 #define isnan _isnan 207 #define snprintf _snprintf 208 #define vsnprintf _vsnprintf 209 210 #if _MSC_VER < 1300 211 /* VC6 has broken NaN semantics: NaN == NaN returns true instead +of false */ 212 #define NAN_COMPARE_BROKEN 1 213 #endif 214 215 #endif /* _MSC_VER */
      I guess that is the best thing to try. Since I dont know the headers/includes in sqltype/.c/.ec files are I can't tell you if sqltype is perl-aware (has EXTERN.h, perl.h, XSUB.h) or not. If it is perl aware, it should have gotten that redefinition, and if that redefinition didn't happen yet the compiland is perl aware that is a different problem to trouble shoot.

      Since _snprintf is in msvcrt.lib and msvcrt.lib is on the cmd line to link, the link will work then.
      link -out:blib\arch\auto\DBD\Informix\Informix.dll -dll -nolog +o -nodefaultlib -debug -opt:ref,icf -libpath:"C:\Perl\lib\CORE" -ma +chine:x86 I nformix.obj dbdimp.obj dbdattr.obj sqltoken.obj sqltype.obj ixblob.obj + odbctype.obj kludge.obj link.obj esqlcver.obj esqlc_v6.obj /LIBPATH: +C:\PROGRA~2 \IBM\Informix\11.70/lib /LIBPATH:C:\PROGRA~2\IBM\Informix\11.70/lib/es +ql "C:/PROGRA~2/IBM/Informix/11.70\lib\isqlt09a.lib" "C:/PROGR +A~2/IBM/Inf ormix/11.70\lib\igl4n304.lib" "C:/PROGRA~2/IBM/Informix/11.70\lib\iglx +n304.lib" "C:/PROGRA~2/IBM/Informix/11.70\lib\igo4n304.lib" netapi32. +lib wsock32 .lib user32.lib winmm.lib advapi32.lib C:\Perl\lib\CORE\perl58.lib ol +dnames.lib kernel32.lib user32.lib gdi32.lib winspool.lib comdlg32.l +ib advapi32 .lib shell32.lib ole32.lib oleaut32.lib netapi32.lib uuid.lib ws2_32. +lib mpr.lib winmm.lib version.lib odbc32.lib odbccp32.lib msvcrt.lib + -def:Infor mix.def Creating library blib\arch\auto\DBD\Informix\Informix.lib and objec +t blib\arch\auto\DBD\Informix\Informix.exp sqltype.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _snprintf refe +renced in function _sqltypename ixblob.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _mkstemp refere +nced in function _blob_locinanonfile blib\arch\auto\DBD\Informix\Informix.dll : fatal error LNK1120: 2 unre +solved externals NMAKE : fatal error U1077: '"c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual S +tudio 10.0\VC\BIN\link.EXE"' : return code '0x460' Stop.
      The "ixblob.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _mkstemp referenced in function _blob_locinanonfile" error will be more difficult to diagnose. Again looking through a typical CPAN module .i file I see.
      #line 280 "c:\\perl517\\lib\\core\\win32.h" extern char * getlogin(void); extern int chown(const char *p, uid_t o, gid_t g); extern int mkstemp(const char *path); __declspec(dllimport) void Perl_win32_init(int *argcp, char *** +argvp); __declspec(dllimport) void Perl_win32_term(void); __declspec(dllimport) void Perl_init_os_extras(void); __declspec(dllimport) void win32_str_os_error(void *sv, DWORD e +rr); __declspec(dllimport) int RunPerl(int argc, char **argv, char * +*env);
      Thats really interesting. That is the 1 and only mention of mkstemp in the .i file. I look at export list of msvcr100.dll (happens to be on my screen), no mkstemp or _mkstemp, I also looked at export list of perl517.dll (my perl). Its a bug with the perl interp. Perl declares a mkstemp at win32/win32.h#l282 in perl.git, but Perl's internal mkstemp at win32/win32.c#l1089 in perl.git isn't exported, so that badly suppressed another "assuming extern returning int" you should have gotten. I'm off to file another RT bug now.
