Hello dear GD programers, we used GD::Simple in a web application, which reports an error, when using GD 2.41: Software error: Can't locate GD/ in @INC (@INC contains: C:/Programme/Perl/site/lib C:/Programme/Perl/lib .) at C:/Programme/Perl/site/lib/GD/ line 158. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at C:/Programme/Perl/site/lib/GD/ line 158. Commenting line 158 in restores the full functinality in our case: 158 # use GD::Group; Since module GD::Group is no more included in GD 2.41, this line should perhaps be deleted. I assume, you have the functionality of GD::Group implemented elsewhere, since it is greyed out on the CPAN site. Code for reproduction of the error: Enter in terminal window: perl -e "use GD::Simple;" Suggested solution: Delete line 158 in This will perhaps also resolve bug 39947? My test system is Apache 2.2.9/PHP5.2.6 and ActiveState Perl 5.10.0 build 1003 running on Windows NT build 2600. Anyway GD is a nice software!

I believe the correct fix (get GD::Group installed instead of avoiding using it) is in 39947.
GD::Group was missing several releases ago. Please update your GD -- Reini Urban
