Monks,

As part of a project at work I need to utilize PDL::Opt::Simplex to do a little optimization. Being on a windows box, not all the modules I would desire are available via PPM. PDL-2.4.2 appears to be that way. So in order to get the functionality I need I went about learning how to install/compile modules that include c++. I read all the relevant tutorials and SoPW via super search. I was able to make progress so that there was less complaining by Makefile.pm and nmake. Nmake still dies and throws the error below:

C:\PDL-2.4.2>nmake

I was wondering if this error was still a complier setup problem or a problem that runs deeper with the PDL setup. Obviously I could be doing something wrong that is very apparent, but I donít see it. I would like to learn how to compile modules on windows but Iím really looking for a solution that will get Opt::Simplex working. Thank you all in advance for your wise answers.
