Esteemed monks,

I have been trying to install Data::Ical using CPAN because it is not in the current ActiveState PPM repository. Using PPM I have made sure I have all the dependencies installed, then I run the CPAN install and this is what I get. Going to build J/JE/JESSE/Data-ICal-0.13.tar.gz *** Module::AutoInstall version 1.03 *** Checking for Perl dependencies... [Core Features] - Test::More ...loaded. (0.47) - Test::Warn ...loaded. (0.08) - Test::NoWarnings ...loaded. (0.083) - Test::LongString ...loaded. (0.09) - Class::Accessor ...loaded. (0.22) - Text::vFile::asData ...loaded. (0.05) - MIME::QuotedPrint ...loaded. (3.07) - Class::ReturnValue ...loaded. (0.53) *** Module::AutoInstall configuration finished. Checking if your kit is complete...

Sadly, I have no clue what is going on here, can anybody offer any advice about how to get this to work? If that is possible of course!

  • 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.
