I had problems with the MinGW installer you pointed to (5.0.3); but the latest one (5.1.3) worked o.k.

Oh ... I thought my link was to the latest available .... but apparently not. Can you send me the correct link(s) and I'll amend the post.

I encountered an error whilst dmaking a certain module

Which module ? I know I've seen that error, but that's about all I can recall about it.

The solution is to delete or rename Perl\site\lib\ActivePerl out of the way. The one in Perl\lib is newer ...

I don't quite follow. What exactly is it in Perl\lib that's "newer" ? Also Perl\site\lib\ActivePerl doesn't exist on build 819 (or 820).

I can't recall ever seeing any warnings or errors in relation to false - and I've never been asked to run dmake -S -s. (Do you have any further info on these aspects ?)

I think it would helpful if you'd mention what values you put in dmake's file (or any other files)

I've never put anything in dmake's file (or any other dmake files). All I ever do is place the startup directory and dmake.exe in the same location, and make sure that location is in the path. Perhaps that's what I should have said in my post - instead of referring to the dmake distro's Readme.txt ?

Thanks for taking the time to raise all of this, btw.

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.
