Hiya John.

Not too long ago I used to be in the same boat (or very similar at least).

I had may problems caused by that c:\program files or c:\progra~1 thing. Some were caused due to ExtUtils::MM_Win32, which I had patched a few times (got it from the perl5 mailing list), but which I believe was included in builds after 5.60 (I'm not really sure).

Since I reinstalled ActivePerl under c:\perl, things have been going much smoother, observe (I just installed XML::Twig).

Hopefully you will take the plunge and reinstall to c:\perl cause it can litelarlly make life easier (and I too really hate putting crap under my root, stupid unix-like crap)

update: dmake is an alternative to nmake. You can find a link in outside links.

Disclaimer: Don't blame. It came from inside the void

perl -e "$q=$_;map({chr unpack qq;H*;,$_}split(q;;,q*H*));print;$q/$q;"
