Subject [greenstone-users] Search path for perl
Hi,

Using Windows 2000 professional, I just installed version 2.40a and I have
been able to compile simple test collections. I'd like to go on to larger
and more complex collections using metadata. That suggests the Librarian
Interface, but when I try to use it I receive this message:

>Checking GSDL: ..

I do have perl installed. When it says to make sure perl "is on your
search path" where is it expecting to find perl? What specific search
path? I have seen recent posts showing how to make sure it finds Java but
it has not obliged me with a similar indication of where it is looking for
perl. Please advise.
Thank you,
