Hello, In libwin32-0.27 I am creating the Makefile like this: C:\>perl -MConfig_m Makefile.PL and I am getting the message below. WARNING: postamble takes a string/number not a hash reference. Please inform the author. So here I am trying to inform the author. The module will not "nmake" either, but, given the warning message above I would not expect it to. I am using Windows XP Home edition, SP2, Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600] ActiveState Perl 5.8.8 MinGW (if it matters) ExtUtils::Install version 1.41 ExtUtils::FakeConfig version 0.09 Show quoted text
>perl -MConfig_m Makefile.PL
Checking if your kit is complete... Looks good Checking if your kit is complete... Looks good Writing Makefile for Win32API::Net WARNING: postamble takes a string/number not a hash reference. Please inform the author. ***** etcetera, etcetera ****** After that, I try to do nmake, and at the end of a lot of other good looking output (not shown) I get a curious error message that concerns ExtUtils::Install, indicating that it gets something bad from libwin32.
