unable to install external modules

Hi,

I have downloaded win32 module and tied to install it by

make install Win32-0.34

nmake is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file
nmake -- NOT OK

I am not getting how to install external modules, which are downloaded through CPAN.

Can I download external modules using any perl editor, which is absolutely free?


Please clear this doubt.
Waiting for ur reply...............

Thank You.

How you install modules and the editor you use are completely separate things and have nothing to do with each other.

First, what OS are you on? If you are running Unix, why not use the CPAN interface to install your modules. During the setup of the interface, you would see which programs you need and will have to install in order to install modules.

If you are on Windows, then I recommend using Strawberry Perl and not Active State as you can use the same CPAN interface with it. I have written an article in the "Howtos" area here on TSDN on how to install and run Strawberry Perl.
