I have tried to figure this out on my own to no avail.
I use Activestate perl on win32-XP
I love ppm's, but they are not always available.
So, I would like to be able to install stuff from CPAN and I have been trying to use the cpan shell.
I get a problem with the cpan.bat and related programs not finding the program "cl"
Here is the error 'til <<END
cl -c -nologo -Gf -W3 -MD -Zi -DNDEBUG -O1 -DWIN32 -D_CONSOLE -DNO
RICT -DHAVE_DES_FCRYPT -DNO_HASH_SEED -DUSE_SITECUSTOMIZE -DPERL_IMPLICIT_CON
T -DPERL_IMPLICIT_SYS -DUSE_PERLIO -DPERL_MSVCRT_READFIX -MD -Zi -DNDEBUG -O1
-DVERSION=\"2.12\" -DXS_VERSION=\"2.12\" "-IC:\Perl\lib\CORE" Twofish.c
'cl' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe' : return code '0x1'
Someone's blog suggested looking at the docs on installing and compiling perl on win32 ... these docs said that I should download a c or c++ compiler
I tried mingw
But now, if this is the thing to do, I can not figure out how to tell the cpan shell to use the mingw (linker?). Actually, I don't know specifically what mingw program to use for/instead of cl either.
Please help with any suggestions.
