Hey guys. I'm writing perl on my Linux system, but need to use the Win32::Lanman module in order to get everything to work properly.
How do I do that, or can I? If not, any suggestions on a mod that will provide me the same functionality?
Win32::LanMan in Unix(3 posts)
The Win32::Lanman module is a Win32 only module. It relies on Windows specific lanman network libraries. It won't work on non Windows platforms.
You may be able to find linux based libraries which expose Lanman-like functionality. Back in 1994 I found such a library so I know some do exist...but then again that was a long time ago.
Alternatively you could run Windows Perl with Win32::Lanman running under WINE emulatation (or something similar). However I suppose that that would defeat the purpose.
I had a feeling that was going to be the case, but I thought I'd ask anyway. It might defeat the purpose, but I'm not sure yet. I may have to do some sort of work around. I'll give it some thought.
