Beginner: Installing Perl Program

Threaded View

I installed Perl (ActivePerl 5.8.6 Build 811) for Windows 2000 to
directory C:\Perl. I think Perl was installed succesfully, because I
can execute the test program:

Hello from ActivePerl!

But when I try to install MIME-tools 6.110 (needs Perl), I get the

C:\mimetools\MIME-tools-6.200_02>perl Makefile.PL
Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good
Warning: prerequisite IO::Stringy 1.211 not found.
Warning: prerequisite Mail::Field 1.05 not found.
Warning: prerequisite Mail::Header 1.01 not found.
Warning: prerequisite Mail::Internet 1.0203 not found.
Warning: prerequisite Unicode::Map 0.112 not found.
Writing Makefile for MIME-tools

C:\mimetools\MIME-tools-6.200_02>make test
make.exe: *** No rule to make target `C:\Perl\lib^', needed by
`Makefile'.  Stop.

C:\MIMETO~1\MIME-T~1.200>make install
make.exe: *** No rule to make target `C:\Perl\lib^', needed by
`Makefile'.  Stop.

Here's the Makefile.PL:

use ExtUtils::MakeMaker;
      NAME         => "MIME-tools",
      VERSION      => "6.200_02",
#     VERSION_FROM => "lib/MIME/",
      PREREQ_PM    => {"Mail::Header"      => 1.01,
               "Mail::Internet"    => 1.0203,
               "Mail::Field"       => 1.05,

               "MIME::QuotedPrint" => 2.03,
                   "MIME::Base64"      => 2.04,
               "IO::Stringy"       => 1.211,
               "File::Spec"        => 0.6,
               "File::Path"        => 1,
               "Unicode::String"   => 2.06,
               "Unicode::Map"      => 0.112,
      'dist'       => {
#      PREOP        =>"cvu_perl_preop -B -f -m MIME::Tools",
      PREOP        => "pod2text lib/MIME/ >! README",
      COMPRESS     =>'gzip',
      SUFFIX       =>'gz',

Quoted text here. Click to load it

If you are using ActiveState Perl, you should use ppm to search for and
install packages. That way, you don't have to have a compiler compatible
with the one that was used to compile ActiveState's distribution.

Please look in the "ActiveState Perl" program group, accessible through
the Start -> Programs menu. There are links to documentation, and the
ppm shell in there.

ppm will automatically download and install any prerequisites as well.
