00:09 willthechill the odd thing is that Alien::astyle seems to install and work fine as one of the prerequisites for RPerl on AppVeyor, but A::astyle fails (with the A::gmake glob.h error) when it is built solo (not part of RPerl) on AppVeyor
00:09 willthechill plicease & jberger: please let me know when you have a moment to give input on this Alien::gmake & glob.h issue, thanks!  :-)
02:18 willthechill RPerl uses EU::MM and dmake, and also includes Alien::astyle, and that passes fine on AppVeyor
02:19 willthechill Alien::astyle itself uses dzilla & Build.PL, and crashes on building Alien::gmake
02:19 willthechill is there some way to NOT use Alien::gmake and just use dmake instead?
02:19 willthechill (this is all in AppVeyor running on Windows)
05:12 willthechill perlbrew question: can anyone confirm if perlbrew does or does not work with 5.25?
05:12 willthechill (not working for me on travis...)
05:13 willthechill OOPS wrong channel!  :-P   (still would be helpful to have an answer, haha)
05:14 willthechill plicease & jberger: I'm still stuck on the gmake vs dmake problem...  need to know if I can somehow not use Alien::gmake because it is failing on AppVeyor?

14:13 plicease willthechill: you can try Alien::gmake 0.15 https://metacpan.org/pod/release/PLICEASE/Alien-gmake-0.15/lib/Alien/gmake.pm
14:13 willthechill okay!  :-)
14:14 plicease you will need to make sure that Alien::gmake is installed either with ALIEN_INSTALL_TYPE set to system or unset
14:15 plicease that will use the gmake that comes with Alien::MSYS on windows
14:15 plicease but it will still attmpt a source build if you force it
14:16 plicease patches welcome to get the source build but I do not have time to look into that atm
14:17 willthechill okay cool
14:17 willthechill I'll see if I can give it a run right quick before I pass out, haha!
14:20 willthechill okay on the ALIEN_INSTALL_TYPE env var, I currently have appveyor.yml set up with both values "system" and "shared", so it does 2 builds for each commit
14:20 willthechill is that now incorrect?
14:21 plicease not for Alien::astyle.
14:21 plicease just for Alien::gmake unset  ALIEN_INSTALL_TYPE
14:21 plicease or set to system
14:21 plicease in linux you could
14:22 plicease env ALIEN_INSTALL_TYPE=system cpanm Alien::gmake
14:22 willthechill okay I see
14:22 plicease not sure the equivalent in windows land
14:22 willthechill hmm yeah good point
14:22 plicease in fact you don't need Alien::gmake for a system install
14:22 plicease of Alien::astyle
14:23 willthechill hmm not sure how to configure that in appveyor.yml
14:27 plicease http://superuser.com/questions/223104/setting-environment-variable-for-just-one-command-in-windows-cmd-exe
14:29 willthechill okay great
14:52 willthechill I think Alien::gmake just installed on AppVeyor!  :-)
14:53 willthechill it works!!!  :-D   https://ci.appveyor.com/project/wbraswell/alien-astyle/build/1.0.18/job/sbs9u39532u595w4
14:54 willthechill plicease++
14:54 plicease yay
14:54 willthechill now I can sleep lol
14:54 willthechill see y'all in a few hours!
