install Net::SSH2, I tried to install libssh2. I do not have Visual
Studio, couldn't find any binaries, and ultimately couldn't figure out
how to install libssh2.
Any chance of someone creating a Net::SSH2 ppm being created for
5.10? If not, any pointers on creating libssh2 on Windows XP without
using Visual Studio?
Re: Net::SSH2 and libssh2
I've got libssh2-0.17 on Win32, and I've built Net::SSH2 for
ActivePerl 5.8 in the past.
I don't envisage any trouble building Net::SSH2 for ActivePerl 5.10 -
but I'm a bit pressed for time.
For perl 5.8 (if it's any consolation) you can:
ppm install http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms/Net-SSH2.ppd
And for perl 5.6:
ppm install http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppmpackages/Net-SSH2.ppd
I'll build it tomorrow night for 5.10 and forward the ppm off to Randy
Kobes for inclusion in his uwinnipeg rep for 5.10:
He's usually fairly quick at uploading any ppm's I send him (normally
within a day) but if you send me an email address that I can send it
to, I'll also email you a copy when it's done. (You can send to my
sisyphus359 at gmail dot com address.)
I build libssh2 in the (freely available) msys shell, using the
(freely available) mingw compiler.
There's a couple of minor amendments to the libssh2 source that need
to be made - and you also need openssl and zlib.
It's not all that difficult to build - but it's not as straightforward
as it ought to be, either.
