Good Day, I am trying to "install" Devel-Size on my Windows XP environment. I am following the instructions provided on the "README" web page for Devel-Size. When I execut ethe instructions I receive the following: Please advise.

I've taken over maintenance of Devel::Size, and I'm afraid that my knowledge of Windows is minimal, so I'm not really going to be able to help you much here. However, that message makes me think that the problem is more general than "Devel-Size won't build". In particular, the build doesn't even seem to have got to the point of trying to processing Size.xs. Have you successfully built any other CPAN modules on your current setup? You're probably better asking for Win32 build help on perlmonks - http://www.perlmonks.org/?node=Seekers+of+Perl+Wisdom#post or on irc.perl.org, channel #perl-help At least until you get to the point where the error output from a failed make mentions Size.xs Nicholas Clark

Hi Gary, Since you have MinGW, I believe the generated Makefile is for dmake not nmake. So, replace the commands with dmake as in: dmake && dmake test && dmake install If you don't have dmake install it from http://search.cpan.org/dist/dmake/ and be sure that the path where dmake.exe is in you %PATH% env variable (or call it with full path like: C:\Foo\bar\dmake\dmake.exe ).

That's quite spectacular. The compiler can't find the headers for the standard C library. (Most obvious reasons being either that compiler is looking in the right place for the headers for the C library, but the headers aren't installed, or that the headers are installed, but the compiler isn't looking in the right place for them) I don't know anything about installing compilers on Win32, so I can't really help further. But your problem is that the installation of your compiler + library installation isn't complete and correct - you won't be able to compile anything. Nicholas Clark

Hi Gary. I'm helping out with Devel::Size and was wondering if you've been able to resolve the issue. Tim.

Honestly, I gave up and have since moved to Windows 7 x64. I think part of the issue was that I stumbled across something stating that the kit was not meant for the WINDOWS environment, thus giving up. gary Show quoted text
