Subject: Encode is not properly installed in Strawberry April 2010
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.4k
If I try to install Encode::HanExtra in Strawberry 5.12 April 2009 32-bit MSI compiled at Apr 25, I get the following issue: Going to build A/AU/AUDREYT/Encode-HanExtra-0.23.tar.gz enc2xs not found! at Makefile.PL line 46. Warning: No success on command[C:\strawberry\perl\bin\perl.exe Makefile.PL] AUDREYT/Encode-HanExtra-0.23.tar.gz C:\strawberry\perl\bin\perl.exe Makefile.PL -- NOT OK Running make test Make had some problems, won't test Running make install Make had some problems, won't install Failed during this command: AUDREYT/Encode-HanExtra-0.23.tar.gz : writemakefile NO 'C:\strawberry\ perl\bin\perl.exe Makefile.PL' returned status 512 A workaround is to force install Encode, after that installation of Encode::HanExtra works as expected. Some snippet from #win32: (4:14:28 PM) kmx: mike__b: the Encode issue seems to be caused by missing "strawberry/perl/bin/enc2xs" in strawberry 5.12.0-RC2 (note "strawberry/perl/bin/enc2xs.bat" exists but the detection routine in Encode::HanExtra requires "enc2xs"). Please start an RT for this at Perl-Dist-Strawberry. (4:15:01 PM) mike__b: Great, thanks. I'll do that. (4:15:03 PM) kmx: mike__b: simply "Encode" seems to be incorrectly preinstalled in Strawberry 5.12.0 RC2 (4:39:09 PM) BinGOs: er only having enc2xs.bat does not mean it is incorrectly installed. (4:41:06 PM) BinGOs: The mechanism that Encode::HanExtra is using is wrong. So I guess that leaves the question for the root cause still open. ((enjoy)) Mike.

OK I have now also created this ticket: please consider if you want to close this ticket or not.
I agree with postponing this RT but it would be at least worth investigating why the same version on Encode DOES install perl/bin/enc2xs.bat when installing via "cpan -fi Encode" and why it DOES NOT install when installing perl/bin/enc2xs.bat during strawberry build process.

Encode::HanExtra installs fine on strawberry perl therefore closing this RT
