in reply to installing missing perl modules

Have you tried this?

$ cpan Math::Random::ISSAC $ cpan Email::MIME $ cpan Email::Send

Hit enter (accept the defaults) for the questions that come up the first time through, unless you have some idea of why you might not want to accept the default. Oh, and although Windows isn't terribly case-sensitive, the CPAN installers (and Perl) are, so you do need to pay attention to how module names are capitalized.

Strawberry Perl should be able to use the cpan installer without too much trouble. At least it does for me when I'm working with Windows.

Individual modules may present challenges of their own. But at least for the ones you've mentioned, I don't believe they present any unusual difficulties for Windows users.

    Thank you for quick reply. I tried the command you have suggested. But I am getting the following error.

    Catching error: "Can't locate object method \"Send\" via package \"Ema +il\" (perhaps you forgot to load \"Email\"?) at C:/strawberry/perl/li +b/ line 376, <IN> line 1.\cJ" at C:/strawberry/perl/lib/CPAN.p +m line 392, <IN> line 1.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
