Building XML::Simple from Perl CPAN

Download XML::Simple from CPAN and then decompress and untar the downloaded file.

Execute the script Makefile.PL to write the makefile

root@linux:/tmp/XML-Simple-2.18 # perl Makefile.PL
Checking installed modules …
XML::SAX is installed, it will be used by the test suite
Checking if your kit is complete…
Looks good
Writing Makefile for XML::Simple

Run make

root@linux:/tmp/XML-Simple-2.18 # make
cp lib/XML/Simple/FAQ.pod blib/lib/XML/Simple/FAQ.pod
cp lib/XML/Simple.pm blib/lib/XML/Simple.pm
Manifying blib/man3/XML::Simple::FAQ.3pm
Manifying blib/man3/XML::Simple.3pm

If you wish, you can skip to make install. Here I check if make test throw any error messages to my screen

root@linux:/tmp/XML-Simple-2.18 # make test
PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/bin/perl “-MExtUtils::Command::MM” “-e” “test_harness(0, ‘blib/lib’, ‘blib/arch’)” t/*.t

Then I install the files
