Hi Guys,

I recently tried to install the W3 validator on my local machine running on windows XP here is the guide
http://validator.w3.org/docs/install_win.html

Everything seemed to go fine all except the installation of one of the perl modules Text-Iconv
it says on the guide (as its a installation guide for windows) that it will work but when i look for this module on windows i can't find it anywere

Ive searched all over google for 3 days running now and still havn't solved my problem, please could someone who is very clever see if they can do a windows install and provide me the details on how i would be very gratefull.

Thanks
Alan

Hi,

If it didn't install the perl module you can do it yourself. Just download the zip file here:
http://search.cpan.org/~mpiotr/Text-Iconv-1.4/Iconv.pm

Perl modules usually go into C:\perl\lib or c:\perl\site\lib
You don't need to do the usual "make install" stuff that you would on Unix/Linux. Just put the extracted folder into C:\perl\site\lib and make sure that in the perl script that it has something like:
use Text-Iconv;
