Perl Question

What to do for Math::Pari in cpan terminal

I found this one relevant question on problems with installing Math::Pari, here. Except this is for shell and I have cpanm. I downloaded the latest version of Pari, Pari 2-7-6. Where should I extract the files in C:\Program Files (x86)\Pari-2-7-6 to install Math::Pari in perl (not in cpan shell however) successfully? Thanks in advance.

C:\Users\Jlinne\Documents> cpanm Math::Pari

Here is an easy way on Windows:

  1. Download and extract the module: https://metacpan.org/pod/Math::Pari
  2. cd into the directory you created when extracting
  3. perl Makefile.PL force_download <- this downloads things to the right place
  4. dmake
  5. dmake install
