work? I am having lots of trouble.

c:\program files\slimserver\server\slim.exe --d_plugins

output from that will likely tell you that you are missing modules. Easiest way
to deal with that on windows is to download and install ActivePerl
(www.activestate.com) then type:

ppm install <modulename>

that may or may not get you started, and I am most certainly not supplying the
most detailed instructions becuase I dont run on windows, so this is from
memory.

output from teh d_plugins command will be a good start.

Now it's coming back to me. PublicRadioFan works for me now because I did
install specific Active Perl modules. This was back in November 2004, and
you could browse the archives
http://lists.slimdevices.com/archives/discuss/2004-November/subject.html to
follow that thread. I'll quote from one of the November emails below. But
reading over it, it seems to me that it never did quite get it working at
that point. Then the holidays hit, and I didn't get back to it. Instead I
started in on getting AlienBBC to work. When I tried PublicRadioFanBrowser
at that point, it was working. I know that as part of the AlienBBC
installation, I 1) did a complete rebuild of Slimserver down to deleting the
Slimserver directory and reinstalling a nightly build from early February (I
saved my plugins, but just copied them back into the plugins directory) and
2) reinstalled ActivePerl with the current version. Perhaps reinstalling
Perl made available all the modules PRFB needs.

I'm attaching the files* I currently have in my installation that I mention
in the description below. Check to see if you have them already, and if not
drop them into their appropriate directory. But as I said, I just did a
complete rebuild, so a current nightly must already have these in it.

So here's what I had to do to get the plugin to show up in Slimserver:

Tue Nov 9 16:26:11 PST 2004

For (me running Win XP) it entailed:
installing ActiveState's Perl (using the link supplied by Nick)
running PPM from a command prompt
-searching for TreeBuilder
-installing
-searching for cookies (probably wasn't needed)
-installing

then looping through a series of slim restarts:
-starting a command prompt and running Slim.exe --d_plugins
-examining the error messages,
-adding the appropriate file that wasn't found to the appropriate directory

In the end I needed a few more files:
In C:\program files\slimserver\server\CPAN\HTML
-Treebuilder.pm
-Element.pm
-Parser.pm
-Tagset.pm

In C:\program files\slimserver\server\CPAN\HTTP (But I think these were
already there)
-Cookie.pm
-Cookies folder

I also had to create a directory and add a file:
C:\program files\slimserver\server\CPAN\Auto\HTML\Parser
-Parser.dll

With these additions, the PublicRadioFan plugin showed up in the Internet
Radio menu item.
