( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I've recently made two related posts Installing modules on Win32 and Thanks - Win32 module help. Although I haven't been using Win2k (I've been using Win98) I can probably give you some help.

From what I remember, that error is the same error that WinNT uses for "bad command or filename". I can only assume that cygwin hasn't been installed properly (is it in your path?) Personally I didn't have much luck with cygwin so I can't comment on that. Were you running nmake from it?

Perl's module generates makefiles in the syntax for whatever version of make perl -V:make tells you (see linked nodes for more info), so it is not surprising that the makefile works with one 'make' and not the other.

It's not surprising that asim couldn't find nmake, I found I really difficult to find which is why I made a point of linking to it from the above nodes.

I couldn't get PPM working, so I just jacked in ActiveState (after all, their install broke my Windows installation -- but is mostly poor Windows design). I shifted over to a IndigoPerl and I've been far happier with it and the DPM prog provided (binary compatible with PPM repositories).

Hope this helps.

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
