      I am new with Perl, and I have a question about the installation. In

          Jason's solution will likely work for you.
          But, if you want to install other Perl modules under Windows, here's what's going wrong:
          Most unix-like operating system installations have a utility called 'make', which you, under Windows, do not appear to have. That's what the "'make' is not recognized  as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file." message means.
          Microsoft provides a utility called NMake; here is a link to an article that describes how to install NMake and shows an example build of a Perl module:

            For what its worth:
             
            I work on Windows all the time, and I keep having to go through the make -> make install process for various perl libraries (like Jason's QueryData and Ted/Sid's Similarity). Windows doesn't seem to come with make, and cygwin's make gives me grief all the time. Now, if you have Visual Studio installed, you can replace make with nmake and it seems to work for me. (So, I go "nmake", then "nmake install"). I know this works with Visual Studio 6, not sure if it works with .Net as well.
             
            Thanks

                  Alternatively, you can install NMake and use the Unix installation steps.

                      After that I go to that directory WordNet-QueryData. write in command line perl Makefile.PL.
                      After doing this, I can use WordNet-QueryData in perl.
                      No need to use, nmake or make.

                          We can install perl in any derive. I think default location of perl modules may be two place. this perl\lib or perl\site\lib.
                          How I become to know this is when I write 'perl test.pl' in command line, it shows the message that it can not find WordNet\Wordnet.pm in @INC of c:\perl\lib or c:\perl\site\lib.
                          Hope you can understand my words.

                          Is c:\perl\lib the standard place for perl modules on Windows? Is
                          that the default location if you install perl?

                            Very understandable. Thanks. I think perl\site\lib would be the
                            appropriate location.

                            Here's what I currently have in the QueryData README for Windows install:

                            -----8<-----
                            WINDOWS INSTALLATION
                            --------------------

                            This assumes that perl was installed to the default location (C:\perl).

                            0) Make sure that you have installed WordNet to C:\Program Files\WordNet\2.0
                            1) Unpack the WordNet QueryData distribution
                            2) Create the directory C:\perl\site\lib\WordNet
                            3) Copy QueryData.pm to C:\perl\site\lib\WordNet
                            4) Run "perl test.pl" to test the installation

                            Alternatively, you can install NMake and use the Make installation steps.
                            See http://johnbokma.com/perl/make-for-windows.html for info on NMake.

                            If you use Windows, I'd appreciate it if you could remove your current
                            installation of QueryData, then re-install using these instructions.
