Hello list:
Sorry to bother you again, I am still unable to crack the installation. I am trying to install cURL on my desktop (Windows XP Proffesional workstation). I ran through the perl successfully. But There was no created. Please help.
Secondly, do you know of step by step installation instructions for installing cURL on a windows machine. The one on the website focusses on UNIX.
Thank you in advance,

I am new to Curl have been browing the site to get through the Curl installation. The only thing I want to use curl for is to download a xml file from a website. My code is written in Perl. So I am using libcurl.
1. Is there any better way to do this?
2. My installation fails with the following error:
'curl-config' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
'curl-config' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
Found curl.h in ../curl/include/curl/curl.h
