in reply to Tk::TableMatrix won't build on Strawberry 5.26.0

Anyone know how to work through this?

Not yet, but I see the same and it looks to me that ExtUtils::MakeMaker is not playing nicely with gmake.
Strawberry 5.26.0 is the first Strawberry Perl to use 'gmake'. Earlier versions use 'dmake', and there's no problem installing Tk::TableMatrix on Strawberry 5.24.0.

My guess is that it's EU::MM (not gmake) that's causing the problem. But it's getting late over here, and some bastard has been drinking my whisky, so *I* won't be able to contribute much else until tomorrow.

Another possibility is that Tk::TableMatrix (which hasn't been updated in 10 years) is suffering some form of bitrot that has only come to the fore now that Strawberry uses gmake. (But I'm still backing that EU::MM is the culprit.)

Cheers,
Rob

    I doubt it :)

    You can't up and switch out make for dmake for gmake for ... and not expect problems from everything, esp a Tk-TableMatrix-1.23/Makefile.PL from 2006

    This can't have been a surprise for strawberryperl

      Yes, I don't think anyone's sitting around thinking "I can't believe this has happened".
