Hi, I was originally doing a CPAN install of Device::BlinkyTape but it failed when it got to the Device::SerialPort dependency. The last lines are shown below. Writing MYMETA.yml and MYMETA.json (D:\strawberry\perl\bin\perl.exe Makefile.PL exited with 0) CPAN::Reporter: Makefile.PL result is 'pass', No errors. OKKO/Device-Blinkytape-0.004.tar.gz D:\strawberry\perl\bin\perl.exe Makefile.PL -- OK Running make for O/OK/OKKO/Device-Blinkytape-0.004.tar.gz Show quoted text

Despite the message above, no config.log file was created. Curiously, I had no problem yesterday with doing a CPAN install of Device::BlinkyTape and its dependency Device::SerialPort on my Mac OS X 10.7.5 also running Perl 5.20.0.

Hi Todd, Device::SerialPort is the non-Windows version of Win32::SerialPort.. It has a very similar user interface - but very *nix-like internals and there is absolutely no chance it will run on any version of Windows. Win32::SerialPort will not run natively on a 64-bit perl on Windows. It will run in a 32-bit perl running on a 64-bit windows machine (e.g. using Strawberry portable). A complete 64-bit version is unlikely any time soon - a major rewrite is required - and I have neither the tuits to do it nor the hardware necessary to fully test it. -bill On 06/19/2014 01:14 AM, Todd Andrews via RT wrote: Show quoted text

Hi Bill, I'll completely understand if you want to close out the ticket as "won't fix." Thanks for your prompt and detailed reply. I'm on a forum for the BlinkyTape product and I'll let them know as well. On 6/19/2014 3:36 AM, Bbirthisel@aol.com via RT wrote: Show quoted text
