in reply to Help With Perl SDL

sudo cpan SDL from the command line installed everything required. How are you trying to install this? If you're having problems it's easier to help if you actually tell us what you're doing and what's going wrong. Specifying Perl version and operating system would be helpful also.

    "sudo" isn't recognized, it tells me. Anyways, whenever I run a program that uses SDL, it says that "" was not found in this folder, but then it keeps doing that error no matter how many files I add to wherever folder it wishes.

    • Windows Vista SP2
    • Latest Strawberry Perl
    • Padre IDE
    • SDL 2.54
      Looks to me that 'cpan install SDL' should work ok. Where does that come undone for you ?
      On my Strawberry perl-5.16.0, I actually installed Alien::SDL manually ('perl', 'perl build', 'perl build test', 'perl build install') then installed the Tie::Simple and Test::Most dependency chains ('cpan install Tie-Simple', 'cpan install Test-Most') and then manually built SDL.

      But the way it all worked suggested to me that I could have simply run 'cpan install SDL'. (I didn't do that because I was having trouble with my 'cpan install' and didn't work out how to fix it until I was half way thru with the manual installs.)

      The SDL test suite concluded with:
      Test Summary Report ------------------- t\core.t (Wstat: 0 Tests: 28 Failed: 0) TODO passed: 21-22 t\core_video.t (Wstat: 0 Tests: 110 Failed: 0) TODO passed: 57, 59 t\sdlx_fps.t (Wstat: 512 Tests: 13 Failed: 2) Failed tests: 6, 11 Non-zero exit status: 2 Files=59, Tests=3827, 287 wallclock secs ( 1.75 usr + 0.58 sys = 2.3 +3 CPU) Result: FAIL Failed 1/59 test programs. 2/3827 subtests failed.
      AFTERTHOUGHT: Of course, those failing tests will mean that you have to use force with the cpan install if you actually want it to be installed.


        I do the command "cpan install SDL", and it tells me that SDL is already installed. I then fire up a Perl file that uses SDL, but the prompt still states that SDL files are missing.

        Anyways, I'll try those commands you used to install Alien::SDL manually.

    try command perl -MCPAN -e shell install SDL

      Why? Did you read my post? It installed for me without problem.
