Perl, mod_perl, perl module install on XAMPP 1.8.2 (Win7)

Postby jhfoo » 07. January 2014 12:55

Hi guys,

I'm using 1.8.2 ZIPped edition of this great app. Tried to install a perl module via cpan, but it complained there's no make. Tried to install via ppm but it complained there's no libexpat-1_.dll. I can't find the mod_perl library either.

It seems I'm not the only one with these issues, but no-one has since responded with a viable solution, so I'm posting here in the hope that someone here knows something.

Is Perl not actively supported on the XAMPP stack any more?

If I remember right, full ppm and library support isn't included in free perl anymore.

mod_perl is lagging behind on supporting Apache 2.4

What do you mean, we gotta pay for ppm/ cpan? Or it's just not coming together with stock portable Perl?

Oh, I know what I was thinking. DBI is no longer free. Requires a business license. Also, they haven't included libraries since 5.12/4ish. That's why I installed an older Perl in my XAMPP stack.

So, I presume you meant to say DBI is CC (i.e. free) while it is ActiveState that is charging the business license for their precompiled binary. Yeah Strawberry Perl, or IndigoPerl, etcetera, if you aren't able to compile yourself.
