Hi, I'm trying to install the Net-Z3950-ZOOM module on a Windows machine. I've uncommented and inserted the correct path for the include, but I am getting an error when I try to run the makefile. Scalar found where operator expected at Makefile.PL line 37, near "$yazlibs" (Missing semicolon on previous line?) Semicolon seems to be missing at Makefile.PL line 42. syntax error at Makefile.PL line 37, near "$yazlibs " Execution of Makefile.PL aborted due to compilation errors. Thanks. Best regards, Jacob Roche

Yes, you need semicolons on the end of the lines setting $yazinc and $yazlibs. I'll add that to the commented-out sample lines in the next release. 2009/8/13 Jacob Roche via RT <bug-Net-Z3950-ZOOM@rt.cpan.org>: Show quoted text

Hi Mike, This is still an issue and there are other issues as well when attempting to run Makefile.PL on Win32. I would suggest wrapping the $yazver, $yazinc, $yazlibs initialization in an if block conditioned thus: "if ( $^O eq 'MSWin32' ) { ----win32 initialization stuff here ----} else { ---- *nix initialization stuff here---- } Also, the pathing to the yaz libraries may differ on win32 depending on where the user elected to install them, so the ability to pass those in to Makefile.PL would be nice as well. I'm going to open a separate bug for the other Win32 issue I referenced. BTW, I'd be glad to make the fixes to this bug. Is there a git repo I can clone from? or do you prefer a simple diff?

Hi, Chris, thanks for getting back in touch. As you probably realised, I never use Windows myself (nor does anyone else at Index Data, at least not for development) so the Windows support for our software does tend to get neglected. I appreciate your offer to provide patches: yes, please do -- I'll make sure they're in the next release, and that you're credited in the Changes file. When you send them, please include a note explicitly stating that you are tranferring copyright to Index Data. Thanks!
