James, I'm aware that zillions of people are having a problem using Net::Ping with ActiveState perl, but I'm not sure what to do about it. I can do "make ppd" under linux just fine. I believe that "make test" fails under the ActiveState perl, but I do not have a "make" utility to even test it. I've put a lot of special clauses within the Net::Ping code to handle win32 platform, but I just don't know how to test it or fix it. Any ideas what is breaking? I think Net::Ping 2.02 installs fine under win32. Rob Show quoted text
---------- Forwarded message ---------- Date: Mon, 10 Feb 2003 19:35:28 -0000 From: "Brown, James (IP)" <jbbrown@lehman.COM> To: "'bbb@cpan.org'" <bbb@cpan.org> Subject: [Net-Ping error] Not intended for this build of Perl Hi Rob, I am trying to install net::ping under Windows NT 4 and PPM3 with Active Perl (version 5.6.1). Unfortunately, I receive the following error message: *********************************************************
PPM> install net-ping
Install package 'net-ping?' (y/N): y Installing package 'net-ping'... ***Error*** Error installing package 'net-ping': Read a PPD for 'net-ping', but it is not intended for this build of Perl (MSWin32-x86-multi-thread) ********************************************************* Could you recommend another version of Net::Ping which I could install please? (or another method of pinging remote hosts under perl?) If you are very busy, would you mind letting me know whether there is a net::ping forum where I could post this question instead? Many thanks, James.
