in thread Building the 'pp' module on windows.

I think I've got the same problem as the OP. Cant figure this one out.... So how does one go about making Strawberry Perl use dmake instead of nmake?

    Please be more specific. Are you trying to install pp on Strawberry Perl? If so how are you trying to install it?

      Hi, Yes, I'm trying to do this via Strawberry.... here's how I go about it:
      - Open up a terminal (Start -> Run -> Open "cmd") - Then type "cpan PAR::Packer"
      It asks if I want to prepend some other dependancies, I always type "Y" and eventually crashes. The last dependancies on the list that it was trying to install were File::Spec and Perl::OSType ... Strangely enough I've managed to install PAR::Packer on a linux machine with no hassles whatsoever, but Win32 & 64 are killing me.

        I've installed PAR::Packer on Strawberry v5.12.3, Windows XP SP3 with no problems. There should be some more information as part of this cpan session which may help diagnose the problem. If you can post this (using code and readmore tags please) perhaps someone can see what's failing and suggest a fix.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
