How to install Perl modules?

Postby drybij » 05. January 2012 20:10

I just installed XAMPP portable (portableapps.com) and the portable launcher. I'm configuring my environment and I would like to know how to add additional modules to the Perl that comes with XAMPP 1.7.7. Specifically, I would like to add DBD::DB2, which (when installed from CPAN) requires C compilation to a binary. There are binaries for Activestate's PPM if that will work with xampp.

Thank you.

Would you be so kind as to add your correct Operating System version to your profile as per these instructions:

Thanks for that. 8)


I am not familiar with Portable Apps version of XAMPP.

Is it the full XAMPP version 1.7.7 or is it the lite USB portable version?

Upon further reading I learned that XAMPP itself is portable as-is. The portableapps page simply links people to the Apache Friends download page.

Back to the original problem...

I'm finding that 'cpan install DBD::DB2' will eventually complain about not finding 'cl'. To remedy that, I'm installing Microsoft Visual C Express now and will report back.

Thank you.
