in thread Install module Tcl Strawberryperl


ActiveTcl comes with a .lib


And  strawberry-perl- finds it no problem using ExtUtils::MakeMaker version 7.10 and 7.34 (latest).

... g++.exe -o blib\arch\auto\Tcl\Tcl.xs.dll -Wl,--base-file -Wl,dll.base +-mdll -s -L"C:\strawberry-perl-\perl\lib\CORE" -L"C:\strawberry-perl-\c\lib" Tcl.o "C:\strawberry-perl-\perl\lib\CORE\libperl520.a +" "C:\Tcl8.6\lib\tcl86.lib" ....

I think OP should verify .lib file exists, then get latest ExtUtils::MakeMaker and try again

    My ActiveTcl installation has a tcl86t.lib (note the t). I'll need to first understand ExtUtils::MakeMaker as I do not know this module and I am not quite sure what do I have to do with it.


      Try calling  perl Makefile.PL -DTCL_LIB_FILE=tcl86t.lib

      While this is not an issue with ExtUtils::MakeMaker itself, still a good idea to keep it current

      This is a bug in VKON/Tcl-1.05/Makefile.PL , it is not retrieving TCL_LIB_FILE= value from C:/ActiveTcl/lib/ , which ought to be tcl86t.lib

      Maybe TCL_LIB_FILE value wasn't available before , but its available know. You should report this bug to VKON ( ) and reference this thread
