Win32 Is there a GD module available for Perl
GD now works with Win32, and can be installed using PPM
But the ActiveState build status page says
GD 2.35 FAIL
It seems to be borne out by this post by Xavi on codecomments.com
Finally I've achived to install GD uninstalling activestate 5.8 and installing 5.6 without any problem.
I found directions and clarifications from Dave Roth here That *may* be out of date though because the latest binary I found of GD.pll (dll) is Win32GD_v960611
This is pretty much a sidetrack from what I'm *actually* working on but since it's a continual problem, I'm going to work on locally compiling modules as time allows.
Since I went ahead and downloaded what CamelPack couldn't find, I probably have most of what it was supposed to do. The exception being, I think, adding the requisite paths. I can probably take care of that. I'll start out with something thats supposed to be simple. ( I googled around a bit but didn't find a single example in my short search BTW )
Any pointers to something (relatively) simple to start with will be appreciated.
Vanilla Perl sounds enticing but I get the distinct feeling everything I'm doing would come to a screeching halt while I tried to get back to what I have installed from ActiveState. Sucky as that is.
I guess the bottom line is: Stennie isn't going to give back the beer, huh?
