I just installed Perl in my computer and I am trying to run a pl file I got from a friend.
It worked very well at his computer but when I try to run on my computer ai got the following error:
"md4 is not exported by the Digest::MD4 module at .."
Someone know what is the problem ? I am missing some library (md4?) that he didn't send me ? Is it a problem with my Perl installation ?
Thank you,

Is this ActiveState perl? If so you can use Perl Package Manager (ppm) to install it; otherwise, try cpan.

Either type ppm or cpan at a prompt.

Hi, I am having problems to install the package:

PPM> install digest-md4
Version 1.1 of 'Digest-MD4' is already installed.
Remove it, or use 'verify --upgrade Digest-MD4'.
PPM> verify --upgrade Digest-MD4
Upgrade package 'Digest-MD4'? (y/N): y
While verifying package 'Digest-MD4': Could not locate a PPD file for Digest-MD4

What I am missing?

Urm... no idea what that error means... I've never seen it. This thread discusses it, which might help.

It is suggested that it could be a proxy/firewall related issue.

If that fails I would completely remove ActiveState perl and then reinstall with the most up-to-date current version.

Sorry, I can't help more than that.

For anyone who might have the same problem..
I had installed a wrong version of the Perl in my windows.
Uninstalled the current, and downloaded and installed the correct version solved the problem
