If you really want to install it on a Windows machine anyways, you might try to install it under Cygwin. It is possible to run your own X Server on Cygwin, so I can't imagine what isn't possible if you really try. :)

Beware though, that Cygwin comes with it's own environment, it's own perl and all, so you are most probably constricted to within that environment with this. And speaking from experience, having several perl environments on your computer can be confusing at best - although they do not clash unless you make them.

Under Cygwin, you can do the "perl Makefile.PL, make, make test, make install" like you expect, or simply use "perl -MCPAN -e 'install <Module>'" on the commandline.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
