( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I've downloaded curl both for Windows and for Cygwin directly from the source, https://curl.haxx.se/download.html, but have not seen the libcurl.pc file in either of them

You've downloaded the Curl source - but you won't get a libcurl.pc (or an actual Curl library) until that source is compiled.
One alternative is to install a Curl library that has already been built.
UPDATE: Correcting myself, it's possible that this is what you've already done, but that the pc file is not provided.


Unfortunately, huck's suggestion of (sudo apt-get install libcurl3-dev) is not going to help much on Windows and Cygwin.
For Cygwin, there should already be such a library available for installation using setup.exe.

For Windows (Active Perl and Strawberry Perl) you can install the LWP-Curl-0.14 module via PPM:
ppm install http://www.sisyphusion.tk/ppm/LWP-Curl.ppd --force
URI is a prerequisite. If you don't have that module installed you can install it with either:
cpan -i URI or ppm install http://www.sisyphusion.tk/ppm/URI.ppd --force
Installing with PPM means that you don't have to bother installing the Curl library.
LWP::Curl PPM packages for perl-5.26 have not yet been built and uploaded, but I can rectify that fairly smartly if necessary.

If you really want to build the module yourself, start with installing the Curl library, and set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable to the location of libcurl.pc.
And get back to us with any issues that arise.

Cheers,
Rob

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
