in thread Installing Image::Magick

Simon,

The documentation is terrible - I can't find any mention of binary installation.

Anyway - the ImageMagick files are in my path and the Image::Magick module is installed.

Thanks anyway.

 

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practise.  But in practise, there is.

    Hi Johnathan,

    Yeah, I've found the docs a bit difficult to parse at times. But if you look at the Windows NT\95 section of the docs, it explains that You need to download the source code, do something with nmake and copy a couple of dlls into a folder in your path. Then you should install the Image::Magick module. It doesn't say exactly what you are going to do with nmake, but I imagine it's in a readme file somewhere.

    Anyway - the ImageMagick files are in my path and the Image::Magick module is installed.
    I suggest you install it using PPM. You don't need to download and install the binaries or the source for ImageMagick - you just use ppm to install the module - which is already compiled to run on Windows and it copies all the files (including the two .dll's) to the correct place.

    It's as easy as: "ppm install Image::Magick"

    =~y'_"' ';eval"die";print $_,lc substr$@,0,3;

      Simon,
      It's sorted now (used the PPM to configure PerlMagick properly). ImageMagick is now running and doing a great job of generating thumbnails of images for my content management system.

      Thanks again for your help.
