supriyoch_2008 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi Perlmonks

I am interested in installing Tk module in perl version ActivePerl-5.10.1.2007-MSWin32x86-291969.msi. I have tried but failed. Then I have tried to follow the steps as given in the post #981436=perlquestion

Re: Unable to install Tk module by Anonymous Monk on Jul 12, 2012 at 16:46 UTC The problem is, in all that stuff you posted, there is not a single re +levant error message Do cpanp -i Tk and if that fails, cpanp -z Tk then make realclean t +hen post the output of perl Makefile.PL && make

When I tried cpanp -i Tk in cmd and pressed enter, I got the following results in cmd:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601] Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

Then I tried to install Tk module in cmd by typing the following codes:

cpanp -z Tk

then make

realclean

then post the output of

perl Makefile.PL && make

I have got the following lines in cmd. I am not sure whether Tk has been installed or not.

I have cheked that Tk-804.031 folder exists in C drive and tried to run the following script 5.pl

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use Tk; my $main = new MainWindow; $main->Label(-text => 'Hello World!' )->pack; $main->Button(-text => 'Quit', -command => sub{exit} )->pack; MainLoop; exit;

But I am getting the following results in cmd:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601] Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. C:\Users\Supriyo>cd desktop C:\Users\Supriyo\Desktop>5.pl Can't locate Tk.pm in @INC (@INC contains: C:/Perl/site/lib C:/Perl/li +b .) at C: \Users\Supriyo\Desktop\5.pl line 4. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at C:\Users\Supriyo\Desktop\5.pl lin +e 4. C:\Users\Supriyo\Desktop>

I request the PerlMonks to provide suggestions so that I can install Tk and run the script 5.pl successfully.

    I suggest you read the errors and warnings:

    "It looks like the installation of dmake and MinGW has failed. You will not be able to run Makefile commands or compile C extension code. Please check your internet connection and your proxy settings!"

    Using a search engine ActiveState PPM Availability and the 401 error:

    "All versions of Perl 5.8 and 5.10 required Business Edition licensing in 2010. ActivePerl 5.8 builds older than build 829, and ActivePerl 5.10 builds older than 1008 must use the manual download process described in this FAQ: http://community.activestate.com/node/8128"

    Or use a modern version of AS Perl, or switch to Strawberry which comes with the build tools installed as standard.

    Update: for clarity, Tk has not been installed.

    Since you're using ActiveState's perl, might I suggest that you consider using Tkx, since IIRC it's installed already? A good beginner's guide to it can be found at http://www.tkdocs.com

      This is excelent advice unless the OP already knows Tk and/or wishes to use existing Tk applications which ran under older versions of ActiveState perl.

      Does anyone know of tutorials for converting Tk apllications to Tkx?

        Does anyone know of tutorials for converting Tk apllications to Tkx?

        See Tcl::pTk

        Whatever joy Tk might have brought you, Tkx is sure to take away

        Converting one to the other is madness
