OS = Windows 2003 (latest sp / hotfixes etc) Perl = Active Perl 5.8.9 Build 825 Apache 2.2.11

Followed the following How-To:

Facing the following errors : (had an html error too, but I used Perl Package manager to upgrade the required package. Now, the Package manager isn't showing any update of the following package and some others too :

SGML::Parser::OpenSP version 0.991 required--this is only version 0.99 at C:/www/validator/httpd/cgi-bin/check line 61.

Q : How can I download the latest package for OpenSP ? Q : Would It be just a matter of click and install the package?

If someone can provide a step by step that would be very helpful, I am not fluent with building perl packages.

Thanks and Regards

Sounds like it'd be a lot less effort to install Firefox and the Webdeveloper toolbar (which uses the validator service from w3c rather than trying to work it out locally - note that it can submit entire pages rather than just URLs so you can still use it for development work not available on the internet - but you need to be connected to the internet to post the code.

Thanks Symcbean for your suggestion, we already have it and use it, we still need the local copy and we already have the version before the latest one working. I have installed the latest one too but i am unable to find the perl packages required in order for this to work without errors. for e.g. SGML::Parser::OpenSP version 0.991, If I comment it out or change the version number to .99 in the "check" file, it works but it's not the latest one then. – rihatum Sep 15 '10 at 13:25
