Re: The MinGW and dmake cpan starts to installby Anonymous Monk
|on Feb 07, 2011 at 00:50 UTC||Need Help??|
2. Since I plan to install MinGW on my own, should I do so before running cpan or are the two MinGWs different?
I have installed MinGW before trying to use cpan (I used it to compile perl), and cpan never tried to install MinGW for me. I mostly use cpanp.
3. The MinGW I install will have make; will cpan still want to install dmake?
If you're compiling your own perl for win32, or you're using ActivePerl, you will use nmake or dmake, never make
You can override make choice at runtime using
dmake is preferred.
4. Regarding the broken links provided by ppm, what is the proper links?
dmake is distributed on cpan, dmake/MinGW by ActiveState, both come with http://strawberryperl.com/
