I should note that the recommended solution at the moment for "Win32 + CPAN" is the "CamelPack", which is a macro-installer that downloads and installs ActivePerl, nmake, and MinGW, then integrates them together properly.

Please note that Win32 is still making the transition from PPM being the most common installation method to having CPAN installation as a viable option, and so your milage may vary a little.

Personally, I would recommend it only for experienced Perl people at the moment, as there are quite a few bugs in common modules that remain unresolved.

To download the CamelPack, and for all other Win32 information, see the http://win32.perl.org/ website.

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.
