Installing HTML::Tidyby bliako (Monsignor)
|on Sep 27, 2022 at 16:39 UTC||Need Help??|
bliako has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
HTML::Tidy depends on a C library tidyp which is a fork, by the author, of libtidy. Compiling the source from the repository is not straight forward as a configure script is missing and additionally, the provided INSTALL instructions contain this warning:
But the link is dead.
What worked for me (in Linux) was to bootstrap configure by using the autotools mantra:libtoolize --ltdl --copy --force && aclocal && automake --add-missing --copy && autoconf
Then also shush the beast with adding these missing files: touch AUTHORS NEWS
And finally ./configure && make all && make install will hopefully install this dependency.
Warning: serious cargo-culting above.
Note both packages mentioned above are read-only and I could not find a way to post this comment there where it belongs.
