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

"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.
