Why is it that people absolutely insist on trying to install modules by hand when there are perfectly good module installation utilities? I will never understand that.

Either way, one of our experts (KevinADC) just pointed out to another user that Active State does not work like this. You cannot just build modules with it. It unfortunately needs to have modules ported to its PPM system. That is one thing that I truly dislike about it in that it only supports a subset of the available CPAN modules.

For Active State Perl you really need to use their PPM utility. If the module you are trying to install is not ported or supported via PPM, then you probably won't be able to use it. If you really want to install this way (which can be painful), then you will want to switch to Strawberry Perl first.

The issue with your installation is that the "cl" command that is attempting to be executed, is not anything that is installed on Windows. I don't know what program that is or what it does, but it doesn't exist.
