in thread SOLVED (mostly): Tk Package Fails to Make

/shrug

I tend to break things when I start jacking around with the contents of files I know nothing about. Since this is a work computer I figured I would behave and play the role of the wide-eyed user afraid to perturb anything....

Any ideas on why it doesn't make though? I did poke through some of the paths and couldn't find the tchar.h file anywhere, which is probably the problem. Do I need this file? Any idea where I could get it?

    Yes you need tchar.h/stdio.h... but you should already have them, they come with strawberryperl
    12K C:\strawberry/c/include/tchar.h 20K C:\strawberry/c/include/stdio.h
      Sure enough they are at those paths. So then, how would I go about making the Tk package recognize that they exist there. Is there some way to manually tell it where to look? Or do I need to just copy and paste them into the paths specified by the fail message I posted above? Thanks in advance.
        Tk doesn't need to recognize them, your compiler does, but you're using strawberryperl, so that shouldn't have been a problem if you're using a recent strawberryperl( like the latest, 5.10.0.4)
