in reply to Tk::JPEG won't compile

Which displays a LOT of information on the screen but ends up with: Failed 2/47 test scripts, 95.74% okay. 293/2619 subtests failed, 88.81% okay.
Tk::JPEG is part of Tk-804.027. According to cpan testers, Tk-804.027 had PASS (13) FAIL (30) test reports. If you look at a few of those reports, you'll see numbers like:

Failed 42/47 test scripts, 10.64% okay. 1518/1940 subtests failed, 21.75% okay.
Failed 43/47 test scripts, 8.51% okay. 1812/2234 subtests failed, 18.89% okay.
Failed 1/47 test scripts, 97.87% okay. 2/2054 subtests failed, 99.90% okay.
Failed 13/47 test scripts, 72.34% okay. 450/2065 subtests failed, 78.21% okay.
Failed 1/47 test scripts, 97.87% okay. 2/2054 subtests failed, 99.90% okay.

If you ask me, passing failing 2/47 test scripts isn't a big concern.

I tried a perl -MCPAN -e 'force install Tk::JPEG' but I got the same result.
But it installed the module, right (it should have)? If it hasn't (shouldn't), break out of cpan and install the module by hand (A Guide to Installing Modules).

I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).

    Well, I got it to install, here's the tale:

    The perl -MCPAN -e 'force install Tk::JPEG' would NOT install the module. I got the same error messages with the additional line Pragma force used without method: cannot continue

    After reading your response, I was rather intimidated by installing it by hand. On a whim, I tried installing it via the shell with force install Tk::JPEG and it worked!

    I found out about CPAN about 2 days ago, so I didn't know what the hell to do or what my options were, I just tried what I saw. I didn't know about the shell option until I read your link. Thanks for all your help. It is GREATLY appreciated.
