Hi

Ive just tried out the Learn Basics of Perl and it is not as straight forward as expected. Ive just downloaded imagemagick on Ubuntu using
sudo apt-get install imagemagick --fix-missing

and running the script now I get
Can't locate Image/Magick.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.10.1 /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.1 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.10 /usr/share/perl/5.10 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at ./myboardgame.pl line 5.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./myboardgame.pl line 5.

Is the magazine contents incomplete or is there something else I am missing ?

thanks

you probably needs to install perlmagick as well

this is the glue between perl and imagemagick

@INC array is the PERL internal engine "modules loaded" array.
downloading them then installing them is about right.
Can sometimes be PERL version compatibility.

see also CPAN.ORG
and
ActivePerl sites for documentation downloads and tutorials.

I appreciate the OP posted a year ago now.

However http://learn.perl.org is a useful resource as are the mailing lists for beginners at http://lists.perl.org/tag/beginners.html

Regards

L.
