in reply to getting Log::Log4perl to install on windows strawberry perl

Its been logged in the CPAN RT: https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=120926#txn-1717278

I was going to summarize the issue but I just read through the ticket again and I'm not sure I understand it yet, so I'll leave you to parse it. A non technical summary is it looks like Log::Log4perl lost its maintainer.

I'm guessing we need a couple utilities at the perl infrastructure level: One to "fork" a cpan dist in to github (for dists that aren't on github, but L4P already is), and then an update to cpan/cpanm to get it to prefer where to get a specific dist from.

    "I'm guessing we need a couple utilities at the perl infrastructure level: One to "fork" a cpan dist in to github (for dists that aren't on github, but L4P already is), and then an update to cpan/cpanm to get it to prefer where to get a specific dist from."

    First, create the repository on your Github. I created one called simply "log4perl", then:

    cpan -g Log::Log4perl tar -xzvf Log-Log4perl-1.49.tar.gz cd Log-Log4perl-1.49 git init git add . git remote add origin https://stevieb9@github.com/stevieb9/log4perl.gi +t git push -u origin master

    Now you've make a fork of the 1.49 version of the distribution on your own Github.

    Now, when you want to install with cpanm:

    cd c:\users\steveb\repos git clone https://github.com/stevieb9/log4perl cd log4perl cpanm .

    Or, do a make dist in your repository, add the newly created tarball into the repo and do a push, then:

    cpanm https://github.com/stevieb9/log4perl/blob/master/Log4Perl-1.53.t +ar.gz
      First, create the repository on your Github.

      Actually, the thing I needed to do first was to create a repos directory on my local machine, and then within it run:

      cpan -g Log::Log4perl tar -xzvf Log-Log4perl-1.49.tar.gz cd Log-Log4perl-1.49 git init git add . git remote add origin https://github.com/TBlazer66/log4perl.git git push -u origin master cpanm . --force

      Test script:

      C:\Users\tblaz\Documents\evelyn>perl 1.perl_log.pl C:\Users\tblaz\Documents\evelyn>type test.log 2019/12/24 22:25:14 Debug this! 2019/12/24 22:25:14 Info this! 2019/12/24 22:25:14 Warn this! 2019/12/24 22:25:14 Error this! 2019/12/24 22:25:14 Fatal this! C:\Users\tblaz\Documents\evelyn>type 1.perl_log.pl #!/usr/bin/perl -w use 5.016; use Log::Log4perl qw(:easy); Log::Log4perl->easy_init( { level => $DEBUG, file => ">>test.log" } ); # Logs to test.log via stealth logger DEBUG("Debug this!"); INFO("Info this!"); WARN("Warn this!"); ERROR("Error this!"); some_function(); sub some_function { # Same here FATAL("Fatal this!"); } C:\Users\tblaz\Documents\evelyn>

      I was very happy to see such quality responses to my question. Thank you. Perl is such a good activity for Xmas eve.
