Looks to me that 'cpan install SDL' should work ok. Where does that come undone for you ?

in thread Help With Perl SDL
On my Strawberry perl-5.16.0, I actually installed Alien::SDL manually ('perl build.pl', 'perl build', 'perl build test', 'perl build install') then installed the Tie::Simple and Test::Most dependency chains ('cpan install Tie-Simple', 'cpan install Test-Most') and then manually built SDL.
But the way it all worked suggested to me that I could have simply run 'cpan install SDL'. (I didn't do that because I was having trouble with my 'cpan install' and didn't work out how to fix it until I was half way thru with the manual installs.)
The SDL test suite concluded with:
AFTERTHOUGHT: Of course, those failing tests will mean that you have to use force with the cpan install if you actually want it to be installed.
