    If you're using ActiveState Perl on Windows, visit the PPM page to learn about the Perl Package Manager. It will make your life easier by installing pre-compiled modules for you.

    The corresponding Unix command line is: perl -MCPAN -e shell Then, type: install Bundle::LWP and things will work for you straightaway. Building modules on your own is like writing your own kernel, except not as much.

    Yes, PPM is a good way to do things with the ActiveState perl.

    The main thing this is good for is modules which require 'make' and/or a C compiler to build.

    OTOH, If you want to use funky modules which don't need a C compiler, get a copy of WinZip ( or, although it might be a bit Unixy, GNU tar (
    They both understand .gz and .tar files just fine.

    You can then pull out the .pm files you need and move them over to your site directory.

      But i din't find any place in tat link PPM. Please gimme a link where i can download LWP for windows.
        If you have ActivePerl then you should already have LWP:
        C:\>perl -MLWP -le "print $LWP::VERSION" 5.825
        Anyway, to answer your question ... to install LWP via ppm:
        ppm install libwww-perl
