Installing Net::SSLeay on WinXP

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

I'm returning to Perl after a bit of an absence running in a win XP environment. I'm trying to use wsp.pl (O'Reilly Spidering Hacks #30, it's a perl proxy that will write scraping code). wsp.pl is available from www.research.att.com/~hpk/wsp and includes in it's readme directions that Openssl needs to be installed (www.openssl.org). I think I've got the right parts together but can not get Net::SSLeay to install. Does anyone know if this is supported on WinXP?

    Hi,

    If you are using Activestate Perl try typing:
    ppm install http://www.gossamer-threads.com/ppm/Net-SSLeay-1.22-5.8.0.ppd
    From the command prompt.
    For general help with modules check out the tutorial A guide to installing modules for Win32 by holli.

    Hope this helps.

      Thanks marto that seems to been the missing part. I checked the guide link you suggested and that was also helpful. I am curious though as I'm new to XP perl about how one finds ppd's out there. I doubt I'd ever bump into gossamer-ghreads.
        Hi puff,

        if you mean searching using PPM, that is covered in the link to holli's tutorial.
        If you mean 'How do I add PPM repositories?' then you should check out This article.

        Hope this helps.

        Martin
