Problem unzipping DBI module from CPAN

37 New Member

I downloaded the DBI module (DBI-1.601.tar.tar). The download utility says this is a zip file. But when I used Winzip to unzip the file, Winzip gave an error
message "Error reading header after processing 0 entries". Does anyone know why?

Thank you for your help.

No idea.

However, I suggest you take a look at this cpan faq entry:

If you are on the WIndows Platform and using ActiveState then use the ppm utility rather than installing it manually. If you on *nix machine then you can use the following from the command line.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. perl -MCPAN -e shell
  2. install DBI
