install a downloaded module on Win98 Can't Post

Hello Peaple.

I have downloaded a module and i want to install it.
I saw the instructions of the installation but i think those are for unix (e.g: make, make test, perl
Please - Please.... I'm really stuck here. i want to know what is needed to be done when i download a module and how to do it.
i know i can use ppm but it's for cpan or activestate sites ( I think ???).
I use Win98/NT.

Thanks For Any Help...

Re: install a downloaded module on Win98 [In reply to] Can't Post

I usually use Microsoft's tools (Visual C++) to build my Perl extensions. They ship nmake, which does make's job under Windows. There are other (free) tools, like Borland's compiler tools or Cygwin, but I don't know if using them to build modules works without trouble. I've never experienced heavy problems with the MS tools.
On systems without a compiler suite, I'd recommend using ppm. If the module is purely Perl, you could even just copy the module to Perl's site\lib directory.
Hope this helps.
