Pidgin: Perl Plugins

Hi there,

I am playing with the idea of building perl-based plugins for Pidgin Portable.

I followed the instructions for the simple plugin given at
http://developer.pidgin.im/doxygen/dev/html/perl-howto.html

But the custom plugin does not show in the plugin list

Any hints?

Best regards

It seems...

... It cannot load perl.dll. Inside the Pidgin debug windows I get this error message:

(09:34:14) plugins: probing E:\PortableApps\PidginPortable\App\Pidgin\plugins\perl.dll
(09:34:14) plugins: E:\PortableApps\PidginPortable\App\Pidgin\plugins\perl.dll is not loadable: The specified module could not be found.

I have seen around on the Internet and it seems it is not a problem specific of Pidgin Portable, but it happens also on regular Pidgin installation

Hope someone can help

bye

Same problem...

I'm also unsure of where I should put the perl (.pl) file from the mentioned Pidgin Perl Tutorial so I can use it as a plug-in. Has anyone found out?
