Installation of ARSperl

  1. Download the distribution

    It's also available via CPAN. There are pre-compiled binaries for Windows (see below) available too.

  2. Unpack (requires gzip and tar on Unix or WinZip under Windows)
  3. Edit the Makefile.PL and follow the brief instructions contained in it.
  4. Type "perl Makefile.PL"
  5. Type "make"
  6. Type "make install" (may require special permission). This will install the perl extension into the perl lib directory.
  7. Try one of the example scripts.


HPUX users may need to compile the extension statically into the Perl binary.

Windows users can use the pre-compiled binary distribution along with ActiveState Perl. Check here (free registration required) for precompiled ActiveState PPD files.
