Installing SOAP::Lite Package

This section describes a tutorial on how to check and install the SOAP::Lite package.

Now I am ready to verify the SOAP::Lite module file in my ActivePerl installation by checking the module directory:

herong> dir \Perl64\site\lib\SOAP

File Not Found

Looks like SOAP::Lite package is not included in the ActivePerl installation. Let me try to install it using the "ppm install" command:

herong> ppm install soap-lite

Downloading ActiveState Package Repository dbimage...done
ppm install failed: Can't find any package that provides soap-lite

Looks like SOAP::Lite is no longer available in the Perl package repository. It was there before.

So I have to install SOAP::Lite using the CPAN shell:

herong> perl -MCPAN -e shell

It looks like you don't have a C compiler and make utility installed.

Now, let me check the SOAP::Lite module file again:

herong> dir \Perl64\site\lib\SOAP

herong> more \Perl64\site\lib\SOAP\

package SOAP::Lite;

use strict;
use warnings;

our $VERSION = '1.27'; # VERSION

Cool. I have installed SOAP:Lite 1.27.
