( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Greetings, fellow Monks:

I have been a longtime ActivePerl user on Windows, but have recently heard many good things about Strawberry Perl, so I decided to give it a whirl. Unfortunately, I hit a snag very early on and humbly request your assistance.

Specifically, I installed Strawberry Perl (strawberry-perl- on a freshly installed XP (w/ SP3) test machine. I noticed that the libwin32 bundle that normally is included in the ActivePerl install is not included by default in Strawberry, so I fired up cpan to rectify that.

A 'get Bundle::libwin32' later, I got some of the modules, but then I received about 5 errors, all stating: prerequisite moduleFindBin not known.

I'm not sure what to make of this. I queried (cpan> i /FindBin/) and it returned FindBin::Real and FindBin::libs. My questions are:
1. Do either of these satisfy the dependency I'm missing?
2. How can I find out specifically which module needs FindBin? The cpan output was only what I pasted above -- nothing more informative.
3. Will I regret switching? :)

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
