Hello, for our student research project we must write
application which runs on LINUX and WINDOWS. We
have to use Qt for the GUI and PERL for the
processing. Does PerlQt work on WINDOWS? If no, are
there some other solutions. vito

    Hello,
    We don't know the exact status of PerlQt on Windows.
    Though It has been conceived with POSIX systems in
    mind, you can try to build it in the Cygwin POSIX
    emulation layer for Windows.
    Here are a few pointers :
    - you need Cygwin : http://www.cycwin.com
    (while selecting packages, don't forget to select GNU
    build tools:
    automake/autoconf/aclocal... they are needed)

    - an xserver for Cygwin: http://xfree.cygwin.com

    - Qt-3 for cygwin: http://kde-cygwin.sourceforge.net/qt3/

    Then try to build PerlQt-3 by issuing:

    perl Makefile.PL --with-qt-dir=/usr/lib/qt3 --prefix=/usr
    (/usr/lib/qt3 is just a guess... you should verify where Qt
    was installed)
    make
    make test
    make install

    There are little chances that it would work out-of-the-box,
    but if you report me your issues, I can help.

    mmh... too bad you didn't login, you won't be warned when I
    post a follow-up... Anyway, if the Cygwin solution looks
    fine to you and you are willing to work out/investigate
    possible issues, we may continue this discussion by mail.

    Cheers,
    Germain
