in reply to Re^3: Automating Word with Perl
in thread Automating Word with Perl

My copy of Perl is supplied my a 3rd person.
Sadly it does not include word-write.
I have downloaded the tar file and unzipped the contents.
I did try simply storing the .pm files in ...win32/word but this failed (perhaps not surprisingly!).
I have never been involved in adding anything like this to Perl.
Can you summerise what I should do or point me at some instructions?
I guess one question is can this be added or does it have to be part of a complete build of Perl?

    See A guide to installing modules for Win32

    (And in addition to the module, you obviously need Microsoft Word installed on the computer. An old version should do, since that's what I used when writing the module. Later versions of Word probably works too).
