Thank you for your answers, which guided me through my first steps.
Yesterday I was quite happy to succeed compiling mapserver with perl
which is a first step. In compiling gdal I was not that lucky but
got a few millimeters forward.<br>
I tried compiling with MinGW and mysys - and the --with-perl option.
gdal itself compiles ok but the perl-portion breaks up with a file
not found error (perl.h). I guess MinGW gets confused with the perl
installations (it tries to use the one that comes with mysys not the
one I installed in C:\Perl. Is there a way how to tell
configure/make which Perl to use?<br>
I then tried the visualc option - which succeeded aswell, but
without perl. So here are two more questions (sorry for that):<br>
<li>Is it possibible to tell Visualc to compile with perl (as in
the --with-perl - option in MinGW)?</li>
<li>Is it possible to first build gdal without perl and then
install perl later?</li>

in my comming up perl-project I need to use the Geo::Gdal -
module. As I understand I need to compile gdal from sources first
and then build the perl bindings. So far so good, but as I'm not a
C/C++ developer I ran into a host of problems. The first thing I
tried, was to install MinGW and compile gdal with the
"--with-perl" option, which ran for about two hours but broke of
with a message complaining that perl 5.8 was not found on my
system (I have ActivePerl 5.16 installed) - as far as I could
decipher the message - I tried gdal 1.90 and gdal 1.92.
I then tried to compile it using VC 10 which seemed to work but I
didn't find a possibility where to put the "--with-perl" option -
anyway I tried to compile perl using perl Makefile.PL which
imediately complained about being not able to find gdal-conf
(which I couldn't find either). I guess there would be lots of
complaints after that, but I only got that far.
I'm sure my errors have something to do with setting up paths and
compilation options, but I dont't know which and where to set
So here's my question: has anybody a blow by blow account for
C/C++ dummies how to set up Geo::Gdal? That would be great!
Another question is how to deploy the finished application to
I hope you could understand all of my English and my questions are
not too stupid - but I spend two working days on it so far so I'm
a little desperate now.
