Subject: ITIMER_REAL Macro?
Date: Tue, 29 Mar 2011 22:19:45 +0000
To: "bug-Perl-Dist-Strawberry [...]" <bug-Perl-Dist-Strawberry [...]>
From: "Bullis, Bryan" <bbullis [...]>
My apologies if I'm posting this to the wrong place. Please feel free to redirect me as needed. Below is a transcript of my install attempt of the Term::Twiddle Perl package. I get an error saying "my vendor" has not defined the ITIMER_REAL macro. I am thinking "Vendor" refers to the Perl Vendor, though not sure. My OS is WIN7 64-bit. Am I on the right in thinking this is missing from Strawberry Perl or do I need to seek help somewhere else? As you can see I ensured my version of Time::HiRes was up to date. Any help is appreciated. ==== Snippet from CPAN Install ======== Going to build S/SC/SCOTTW/Term-Twiddle-2.71.tar.gz Checking if your kit is complete...
