Trying to build Net::IMAP::Simple (1.2024) on 32-bit Windows under Strawberry Perl. This builds cleanly on Linux systems.

My strawberry seems to want to use nmake … Funny thing about your errors is that those two make rules aren't even used. I took them out. Problem solved? Lemme know if this works? http://jettero.pl/perl/Net-IMAP-Simple-1.2025.tar.gz -- If riding in an airplane is flying, then riding in a boat is swimming. 116 jumps, 48.6 minutes of freefall, 92.9 freefall miles.

Paul, Now working ... after working out how to install this without CPAN on Strawberry (I'm a Linux guy who is being forced onto WinDoze ... but then they are paying me ...) I've no idea how Strawberry manages to install from its CPAN window the compressed tarballs it downloads as it doesn't seem to have tar or gzip anywhere in its toolchain it installs. I had to download and install both manually to allow me to get the build done. I noticed the "unable to start Net::IMAP::Server, skipped all meaningful tests" on the "make test", but looking at the tests themselves I reckoned that this was fine as it will not have anything to connect to on Windows. Happy running a list of a Gmail mailbox inside E-P-I-C at the moment. Thanks very much for your quick response. Now to go and learn the rest of the API for Net::IMAP::Simple and the various Email::<modules> Philip Nelson Senior Subject Matter Expert (SSME) : Databases ADM Life, Pensions & Investments Lloyds Banking Group Telephone : +44(131)655-8001 Email : philip.nelson@scottishwidows.co.uk Show quoted text

In my experience cygwin is the only way to tollerate windows — not applicable under strawberry. I expect you could possibly have chdir()ed into the unpack and done a "cpan ." to build and install, including dependencies. Either way, I'm glad it works. I'll push to the CPAN today. -- If riding in an airplane is flying, then riding in a boat is swimming. 116 jumps, 48.6 minutes of freefall, 92.9 freefall miles.
