Hello, I attempted to install Text::Similarity-0.07, but "nmake install" returned an error that I don't know how to address. I've pasted the error below. I'm attempting this installation with Perl v5.8.8 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread. Here are my locally applied patched attained by running perl -V. Locally applied patches: ActivePerl Build 822 [280952] Iin_load_module moved for compatibility with build 806 PerlEx support in CGI::Carp Less verbose ExtUtils::Install and Pod::Find Patch for CAN-2005-0448 from Debian with modifications Rearrange @INC so that 'site' is searched before 'perl' Partly reverted 24733 to preserve binary compatibility MAINT31223 plus additional changes 31490 Problem bootstraping Win32CORE 31324 Fix DynaLoader::dl_findfile() to locate .so files again 31214 Win32::GetLastError fails when first called 31211 Restore Windows NT support 31188 Problem killing a pseudo-forked child on Win32 29732 ANSIfy the PATH environment variable on Windows 27527,29868 win32_async_check() can loop indefinitely 26970 Make Passive mode the default for Net::FTP 26379 Fix alarm() for Windows 2003 24699 ICMP_UNREACHABLE handling in Net::Ping Can you offer any advice?

Thanks for reporting this James...this error seems to only occur with this particular version of Windows... http://www.cpantesters.org/show/Text-Similarity.html#0.07 As a result, I'm inclined to say this looks more like a problem with that version of Windows than it does Text-Similarity. The specific error that you are seeing is for one test case that checks to make sure that the order of the words in a string doesn't affect the score... the big cat the cat big Should get the same similarity score... Here is the specific test that is failing... ## this test case was causing trouble for Windows - changed in 0.07 ##$output = `$^X $inc $text_similarity_pl --type Text::Similarity::Overlaps --string 'sir winston churchill' 'winston churchill SIR!!!' `; $output = `$^X $inc $text_similarity_pl --type Text::Similarity::Overlaps --string 'sir winston churchill' 'winston churchill sir' `; chomp $output; is ($output, 1, "order doesn't affect score"); In fact the punctuation in the commented version seemed to cause problems earlier with Windows, not sure what's happening here.... While this might be somewhat risky, you may simply want to force the install and/or comment out this test case to get things installed ok... I wish I could shed more light on this - I normally don't use Windows so I'm not in a really good position to test things out, etc. so any observations you might have would be greatly appreciated.
