in thread New Module Area?

I like the writing style -- informative, entertaining, and easy to read. Perhaps you (or someone else) could add a footnote addressing some of the cross-platform issues in installing modules. Personally, I've never installed a module for the Windows version of Perl, and perhaps it works exactly the same way as you've described. Deep down though, I don't really believe this is possible.

Thanks!

    Thank you for your kind words.

    It would have to be somebody else. I am in complete agreement with St. Larry Wall, who teaches:
    Perl is, in intent, a cleaned up and summarized version of that wonderful semi-natural language known as "Unix".

    But you are right, there are many levels of enlightenment, and it would be nice if somebody could amend instructions for those multitudes who walk Another Path.

    Yup, unfortunately it doesn't work exactly like that on Windows. If I could figure it out, I'd tell you all the differences, but unfortunately I can't get it to do anything :( Anyone have any tips for a novice? Nodecam
      AFAIK, CPAN.pm doesn't work under windows, at least for modules with XSUB components. That's why ActiveState gives you ppm (Perl Package Manager).
