Using Set::Object - evidently I need compiled code?

P: n/a
I'd like to have sets of references (I'm from Java; I'm a Set guy). I
understand that you cannot use a reference as a hash key, and that it
gets stringified if you try. So, to make my Set object, I've been
hashing the reference to itself (or more properly, hashing the
stringification to the reference).

I would like to not reinvent the wheel, however, and have found
Set::Object. But it doesn't work when I try to 'use Set::Object',
claiming it can't find something (even though the module is in the
path). The doc for Set::Object refers to XS code, which I gather is
lower-level C stuff. Do I need to link to a DLL or Shared Object or
something? Or worse yet, build it? BTW, I'd like this to run on both
XP and Linux.

Thanks, and sorry for the elementary question.

Why didn't you post the "claim" (message) you got?

Hmm, why not indeed. Here it is:

perl test-set.pl
Can't locate loadable object for module Set::Object in @INC (@INC
contains: C:/Program Files/Perl/site/lib C:/Program Files/Perl/lib .) at
test-set.pl line 4
Compilation failed in require at test-set.pl line 4.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at test-set.pl line 4.
