Re: Need help with Perl/Tk

Yes ... but note that the error message doesn't actually say that
'/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8/cygwin/auto/Tk/Tk.dll' could not be found.
In fact, it says that
'/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8/cygwin/auto/Tk/Tk.dll' could not be
*loaded* ... which implies that
'/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8/cygwin/auto/Tk/Tk.dll' *was* found ....
but ... ummm ... couldn't be *loaded*.
Why couldn't it be loaded ? Perhaps because it tried to load a file
(usually, in my experience, a dll) that couldn't be found at
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8/cygwin/DynaLoader.pm line 230.
I see. Well, I can get no further info from the debugger; it croaks on line
230 just as the comment says:
# Many dynamic extension loading problems will appear to come from
# this section of code: XYZ failed at line 123 of DynaLoader.pm.
# Often these errors are actually occurring in the initialisation
# C code of the extension XS file. Perl reports the error as being
# in this perl code simply because this was the last perl code
# it executed.
my $libref = dl_load_file($file, $module->dl_load_flags) or croak...
But more to this story on the other side of this thread...
