GTK-Perl


Installing GTK-Perl in a source-based distro (lunar), but it wants to see an xml::parser and and xml::writer as prerequsites for the install. Now, perl modules for these things are all over...there are many diffrerent scripts for doing these xml tasks, but I assume that GTK-Perl wants to see something that sould have been compiled in another common package. Anyone know what common program or package normally supplies these functions? I can't find any info yet to help (after looking for a day). I will keep searching. but in the meantime any suggestions are appriciated!

well it wants the xml:arser and xml::writer packages from cpan.org they are very common modules, and there is only ONE of each of them.... (well excluding old versions of course)

cool, Ill look again, as I have already combed their site -- I found a lot of perl "scripts" for xml-parsing, but no source, which is what you are talking about, no doubt. I'll look again!

Well, went in the "front" door to their site this time, and just searched their modules page for the files and found em. Thanks for the kick in the ass to get me going!

you can always do
#perl -MCPAN -e "install package::name;"

from the command line. or ppm in activestate's release. I would recommend Perl/Tk though as it is more portable.
