CPAN module compilation

2
Hi all,

I am trying to install IO::Tty module from CPAN on my Windows Machine which has Active Perl 5.8.8 Version running.
During the module installation, I get the compilation error.

Following is the error:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. #################################################
  2. ERROR: cannot run the configured compiler 'cl'
  3. (see conf/compilerok.log). Suggestions:
  4. 1) The complier 'cl' is not in your PATH. Add it
  5.    to the PATH and try again. OR
  6. 2) The compiler isn't installed on your system. Install it. OR
  7. 3) You only have a different compiler installed (e.g. 'gcc').
  8.    Either fix the compiler config in the perl Config.pm
  9.    or install a perl that was built with the right compiler
  10.    (you could build perl yourself with the available compiler).
  11. ##################################################
I understand I am missing some compilers, but not sure how to go about this.
I am a novice and hence please help me with your inputs or pointers.

Thanks in advance

Regards,
BS

You should be using the PPM application that comes with activeperl to install your modules. See the activestate/activeperl documentation for details about using PPM.
