lib path perl builder on XP

P: 30
Hi, erveryone.

The default lib path on my perl builder is "c:/perl/lib". Recently, I install the WordNet-Similarity-2.05 and run the makefile in it, then run the following command:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. make
  2. make test
  3. make install
console promts "no such command", so how to let my XP know the command "make"?

Since I just used simple *.pm file in the lib, there was no problem. After I run the makefile this package, the perl builder still cant run the code from like:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. use stem;
  3.   my $wn = WordNet::QueryData->new();
  5.   my $stemmer = stem->new($wn)
  7.   my @stems = $stemmer->stemWord($word);
  9.   my $string = $stemmer->stemString($inString, $cache);
Any suggestion?

Thanks very much in advance!

You use PPM to install modules if you are using activeperl. See the activeperl documentation for details.

I agree with Kevin, use ppm.

'make' is a Unix utility used for installing software. Unless you have downloaded and installed the (***ACK***) Window$ port of make, you won't be able to use it. PPM is easier than getting all of that going, believe me.
