#2 makefile:675: *** missing separator. Stop.


I am trying to use swatch on Windows 2000. This would
be a very valuable tool but I am having major problems
with the perl environment.

I am using a win32 version of make and get the missing
seperator error.

Please help me, I would like to use this tool on windows.

    Not sure if its relevant but I had this problem recently on a
    redhat enterprise system, with different software though (a
    cpan perl module). The problem was to do with the LANG
    environment variable. Due to a bug perl didn't like any 'UTF8'
    settings. In my case by default LANG was 'en_GB.UTF8', and I
    got the above error. Changing LANG to 'en_GB' or just 'C' and
    it all worked fine.

    Dont need to run make programs but make manual copy of
    files to the local repository.

    1. To run: perl swatch <options>

    2. Swatch will claim about missing files in the repository, get
    and put them (copy) into your local repository, basically in
    the Perl installation directory (lib/site).

    3. Create the requeried files/directories in the repository, if

    4. Yes, it runs under windows 2000.
