RE: Compiling Glib 1.223 on win xp

Hi Martin

Thanks for the proposal but the problem is not worth the bother. I will probably move to Strawberry perl in 
the future (being obliged to upgrade from xp to w7), and will reconsider this at that time. Since the 
binaries I've found are working now with AS, it's not that much important.

Generally building packages for AS perl with mingw is a pita.  I have
sorted out most of the issues in the last few years I have been
building Gtk2-perl for AS perl, and could send the scripts I am using,
but you will need MSYS as well (I use grep, which I guess I could
replace with perl code, but do not have time right now).

The other option is if you can point me to the Gtk2 build you are
using, I can compile them for you against that version of Gtk2.



I tried camelbox but without installing the core perl which was
needed with
it, and that was not working either with my perl 5.8.9 from

I'm reluctant to have two perl versions installed, it's not very
elegant at
least, and even in twisting the path when using the gtk2 in a script,
prefer to keep the binaries I have found for ActiveState.

The questions will come again when I upgrade and possibly move to
perl distribution.


At this point I have to ask why you're not using Camelbox.  All this
work is done for you already, you just have to run the installer and
let it do it's magick.  It looks like the only downside to running
Camelbox for you would be the fact that you have different versions
Perl and GTK installed and listed in your %PATH environment
and you would need to clean up your %PATH (remove any GTK and Perl
paths not related to Camelbox) prior to trying to use Camelbox.
could be done quite easily by using a DOS batch file, and you would
not need to make any systemwide changes.
