I've been writing a perl script to talk to a perforce server so it will generate a report. I'd like the script to output to two different places, the screen and a file. I found out I need the for this to work. I was at CSPAN but I felt like a I was tumbling down the rabbit hole. One module needed another which needed another and so on. Isn't there any easier way to get the to work on my windows xp (32bit). I have active perl 5.8.8 installed. The last module I tried to get installed was the ExtUtils but it reported it couldn't find a perl.exe anywhere.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I am using ActiveState Perl 5.8.8 on Win32 XP SP3.
I tried the following and had no issues installing ...
