in thread Building the 'pp' module on windows.

i was installing the 'pp' module not the PAR::Packer

Hmmmm.....ok. Perhaps I don't know what I'm talking about, but pp is part of PAR::Packer and I personally don't know how to install pp without installing PAR::Packer, especially since the documentation of PAR::Packer states:

Currently, this module is used by the command line tool pp internally, as well as by the contributed contrib/gui_pp/gpp program.

Plus, it's been my experience that every time I've installed PAR::Packer, the pp utility has been installed.

D:\temp\temp\PAR-Packer-1.013\PAR-Packer-1.013>perl Makefile.PL

That's from your original post. Unless you modified Makefile.PL, it definitely looks like you're installing PAR::Packer to me.

But if you still want to insist that you're installing pp and not PAR::Packer, then I think you might want to share how you're modifying the contents of PAR-Packer-1.013.tar.gz to install just pp without PAR::Packer. That will help others understand that you're needing help with your modified install instead of needing help with installing unmodified package from CPAN.

Of course, if you feel that I have no clue about what I'm saying, please feel free to downvote my responses and/or ignore my attempts to offer assistance.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
