How to run "make" command in windows

Discussion in 'Site & Server Administration' started by zeebloyankees, Aug 8, 2006.

    I am trying to install a perl module and here are the install instructions

    To build this module, run the following commands:

    perl Makefile.PL
    make
    make test
    make install


    when I run anything with make , I get the error that the command is unsupported. Any help?


    Code (Text):
    1. C:\Documents and Settings\stan\Desktop\HTML-Clean-0.8>    make install
    2. 'make' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    3. operable program or batch file.
    Im using windows XP

    Make is a linux command, not for windows. You are dealing with Unix files there, not windows files. To run them, get CYGWIN.

    Thanks alot.

    Do you think "make" will run on a Mac Osx since its based on Unix?

    if you are using active state perl you have ppm (perl package manager) and with that it's easy.
