Need Help Installing Modules (XAMPP)
Alright, so I'm apparently a moron. I'm running xampp, have installed perl on it, but I need to install some modules and apparently am too stupid to do so.
I'm trying to install Threads and SOAP Lite, and they both say to run these commands:
So, first of all, where do I need to extract these files to (perl\lib??) ? Once extracted, where do I run these commands from? Any help would be EXTREMELY appreciated. Thanks for reading.

First of all, what OS are you running this on?

You might be a moron because XAMPP comes with perl. If you install perl again you may have screwed something up, especially if you are using Windows.

Thanks for the replies.
Running this on Windows XP Pro (SP2).

Someone, anyone? Smacking my head against a wall trying to figure out what I assume are 2 very simple things...

Sorry, I have never tried using XAMPP. I use perl (currently strawberry perl 5.10 on Vista 64 bit) and to install modules you just use the CPAN shell.

Hi, not sure how it is in Windows, cause I installed modules using makefile.pl in solaris. It comes with a C compiler, which you need in order to install modules in the way you mentioned. In windows I believe it is not necessary the makefile and stuff. I would recommend you to take a look at this link for methods of installing Perl modules in Windows.

make sure you tell it to use the perl under the xampp directory.
Not sure if I was helpful, but I was able to do the make make install under Unix. Regards.
