in reply to Strange error in using CPAN: AUGMAKE meta target -- SOLVED (kind of)

Most of the modules are current on the PPM sites 5.10. I too have had problems generating some modules on Win32.I am using dmake/mingw. Please check your 'make' and 'cc' (compiler) setting:

perl -V:cc -V:make

to be sure that they are correct. The perl keys on these and other values to build the Makefile.

I was able to make/make test OK Text:CSV_XS 0.72 using ActiveState 5.10.1 1006 on VISTA SP3.

Lastly, you may wish to be sure that the folder/directory that the tar file was extracted into was empty.

Good luck. -c

    If necessary I use ppm, but as I have a minicpan on the harddisk of my laptop, I tend to use cpan first, especially when I am on the road and may not have a reliable connection to the internet.


    A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
