fatal problem with compiling PerlMagick on Windows

Postby perl_newbie » 2011-07-22T08:51:32+00:00

I am unable to compile PerlMagick on Windows XP against Camelbox "tahi" 2009.167.2132Z. Possibly I have been overlooking something (or everything).

Here is what I am doing:

step #1
I read the tasks (cited below) listed at http://www.imagemagick.org/script/perl-magick.php

step #2
task:
- ImageMagick must already be installed on your system
what I do:
- I install ImageMagick-6.7.1-0-Q16-windows-dll.exe with these options enabled: Add application directory to your system path, Install development headers and libaries for C and C++
- Start menu > Run > convert.exe (yes, the ImageMagick executables can be really found by using PATH!)

step #3
task:
- also, the ImageMagick source distribution for Windows 2000 is required
what I do:
- I download http://image_magick.veidrodis.com:8003/ ... indows.zip and extract its content to to c:\ImageMagick\

step #4
task:
- you must also have the nmake from the Visual C++ or J++ development environment
what I do:
- I get nmake.exe v10.00.30319.01 from Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0

step #5
task:
- copy \bin\X11.dll to a directory in your dynamic load path such as c:\perl\site\5.00502.
what I do:
- I copy c:\ImageMagick\VisualMagick\bin\X11.dll to c:\camelbox\site\ and to c:\camelbox\site\lib\
- I have had no smarter idea (b.t.w. what is a "dynamic load path"?)

step #6
task:
- copy \bin\IMagick.dll to a directory in your dynamic load path such as c:\perl\site\5.00502.
what I do:
- I am unable to find IMagick.dll (or any .dll with a similar name) in c:\ImageMagick\ or c:\Program Files\ImageMagick-6.7.1-Q16\
- nevertheless I copy c:\Program Files\ImageMagick-6.7.1-Q16\CORE_RL_*.dll files to c:\camelbox\site\ and to c:\camelbox\site\lib\ since http://studio.imagemagick.org/pipermail ... 06665.html states that
The equivalent to a "IMagick.dll" file is probably "CORE_RL_MAGICK_.DLL". If you are going to copy DLLs, then you should certainly copy all of the "CORE*" DLLs.

step #7
task:
- type "cd PerlMagick" and "perl Makefile.nt"
what I do:
- I type "cd \ImageMagick\PerlMagick" and "perl Makefile.nt"
- I get this message (yes, Makefile has been generated!):
Code: Select all

Writing Makefile for Image::Magick

step #8
task:
- type "nmake"
what I do:
- I type "nmake"
- I get this error message:
Code: Select all
Missing right curly or square bracket at -e line 1, at end of line
Execution of -e aborted due to compilation errors.
NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'C:\camelbox\bin\perl.exe' : return code '0xff'
Stop.

- in order to see what commands are to be executed, I type "nmake /N"

C:\camelbox\bin\perl.exe -MExtUtils::Command -e chmod 644 blib\arch\auto\Image\Magick\Magick.bs

- I have noticed that two commands contain a seemless unnecessary '{'
- so I corrected these commands
Code: Select all
... pm_to_blib({{@ARGV} ...
... qq({{@ARGV} ...

to this:
Code: Select all
... pm_to_blib({@ARGV} ...
... qq({@ARGV} ...

I issue one after one the corrected commands and everything seems to be O.K. until I issue the command
Code: Select all
g++ -o blib\arch\auto\Image\Magick\Magick.dll ...

where I get 1000+ error message like this:
Code: Select all
Magick.o:Magick.c:(.text+0x38c78): undefined reference to `MagickCoreGenesis'

and then the final error message:
Code: Select all
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

And this is the point where I gave up.

Thank you for your attention!
