Subject RE: Win32 Embperl fails to run with libxml2.dll error
Date Tue, 25 Apr 2006 10:53:06 GMT
I do hope mod_perl-1 gets supported soon, since that is how I am using embperl, and unless
I am mistaken, there is no other mod_perl+Apache+Embperl combo on Win32 to be had...correct...?
Anyway, didn't get much of a chance to look into it more, but with AS Perl build 813, a new
Embperl 2.2.0 install and fresh libxml.dll, libxslt_win32.dll, libexslt_win32.dll libraries,
embpexec still gives me the same error.  
I looked around to make sure I didn't have some other libxml2.dll in my path and didn't find
any conflicts (and even "deleted" the one in perl to make sure a missing dll error would follow
and after that force re-installed to get it back) I know it is using the libxml2.dll
from the post install script.
When I get a moment (probably weeks from now...heh), I will try from a different machine and
a fresh perl install w/latest AS build and see what happens with embpexec vs libxml2.dll.
As we go into Round 3, we have libxml ahead by 2, Win32-Embperl =0.  Stay tuned after these
messages from our sponsors...

Seems like Perl redefines the stat call in an incompatible way, so the
returned struct is bigger than the original one, which has overwritten some

Great! Thanks!

Do you see any chance to create a version with mod_perl-1 at later time?
