Can't load '/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8/cygwin/auto/Tk/Tk.dll' for
No such file or directory at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8/cygwin/DynaLoader.pm line
However /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8/cygwin/auto/Tk/Tk.dll is in fact
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.
(When it comes to DynaLoader you gotta learn to read the fine print and make
intuitive leaps :-)
However when I asked in that thread "Is it correct that Cygwin Perl/Tk
requires a running X server?" I got:
That is one of the stranger assertions to pass by here in a while.
I must confess that my reaction would have been pretty much the same. On
native Win32, Tk simply "works" ... and no X Server.
In the final analysis, I can't answer your question(s), but I do look
forward to learning just what the correct solution is :-)
