Hi, after Extracting PAR-Packer-0.982 I tried to create the Makefile. A Makefile is genereated, but I get an error-message (s. below). It seems as if a file is missed on the CPAN server? My version of perl is "ActivePerl-5.10.0.1004-MSWin32-x86-287188.msi", missing Packages where already installed. C:\PAR-Packer-0.982>perl Makefile.pl Fetching 'PAR-Packer-0.982-MSWin32-x86-multi-thread-5.10.0.par' from www.cpan.org... Fetching failed: No compiler found, won't generate 'script/parl.exe'!

this is not a bug per se but rather less than ideal reporting of missing dependencies. Here's the deal: Installing PAR::Packer from scratch requires a C compiler that's set up to work with your Perl installation. Since not everybody has one set up (check out strawberry perl, though), there are pre-compiled PAR::Packer binaries in my CPAN directory. It turns out that there isn't one for that version of PAR::Packer, that windows and that version of perl. I thought I uploaded one, and behold, I did! But it has the wrong name. Several ways forward: - Wait for the corrected file to propagate to your CPAN mirror. - Install Strawberry Perl and use its gcc. - Install a C compiler for your perl. - Download http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/S/SM/SMUELLER/PAR-Packer-0.982-MSWin32-x86-multi-thread-5.10.0.par.bin manually, rename it to ....par (remove the .bin), install the PAR::Dist module, run this: perl -MPAR::Dist -e "install_par('PAR-Packer.....par')" Best regards, Steffen
