- Distribution name and version : strawberry-perl-5.8.8-alpha-2.exe
- Perl version : perl, v5.8.8 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
- Operating System vendor and version : Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6000] : VISTA (MSDN) release , 64-bit
BUG: Include and LIB paths are incomplete/incorrect. CPAN modules that require compilation fail to compile.
More detail – error messages, and workaround are posted at :
Note: My PC (Like most Windows installs) did not have a c compiler, and depended on the gcc installed by Strawberry perl.
However, the include and lib files required to compile CPAN distributions were not available/configured at module compile time.
I made a very crude hack to get my system working. I believe a simpler, more elegant, “proper” fix should be distributed to the community.
Thank you for creating and working on this perl distribution.
