Build Error: JavaScript-QuickJS 0.16 for on Windows


I’ve tried to build a current (or almost current) Activestate perl and have repeatedly tripped over JavaScript-QuickJS build errors. I’ve rolled back to ancient module versions and still everything builds except this module. Can anyone tell me what includes this module or how to bypass build errors. TIA

Looking for help with this package that is failing to build in my project.

I currently see this project is building, ActiveState was there another project that was not?

To resolve the build errors with JavaScript-QuickJS 0.16 on Windows, follow these steps:

  1. Check Dependencies: Ensure that you have all the necessary dependencies installed for building the JavaScript-QuickJS module. This may include a compatible C compiler and any additional libraries required by QuickJS.

  2. Review Build Logs: Examine the build logs carefully to identify the specific error messages that are causing the build to fail. Understanding the nature of the errors can help you pinpoint the root cause of the problem.

  3. Update Build Tools: Make sure your build tools, such as the C compiler, are up to date. Sometimes, outdated or incompatible build tools can cause issues during the compilation process.

  4. Check Compatibility: Verify that the version of JavaScript-QuickJS you’re using is compatible with your version of ActiveState Perl and Windows. If not, consider using an alternative version of QuickJS that is known to work with your setup.

  5. Reach Out for Support: If you’re unable to resolve the issue on your own, consider reaching out to the maintainers of the JavaScript-QuickJS module for assistance. They may be able to provide guidance or updates to address compatibility issues on Windows platforms.
