    perl module problem

    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;

    /John
