Remove trailing spaces. Optimize help output. --gen-thm -> {-g or --generate-thumb}.
3     You can install RenRot to your Windows platform, but you need to do
4     several extra steps.
6     STEP 1
8     First off, you must have a Perl 5.6.0 or later available on your system.
9     If you need to install one, ActivePerl can be a good choice. You can get
10     it here
11     http://www.activestate.com/Products/ActivePerl/
12     Currently you don't have to provide any personal info for download, but
13     if you are still in doubt, you can try to follow direct link
14     http://www.activestate.com/Products/Download/Download.plex?id=ActivePerl
15     and choose a build for Windows (as msi package - clickable option for
16 andy 81 novice, or zip file for more experienced users). Once you have Perl
17 andy 64 installed (it goes to C:\Perl by default), you can type
18 andy 81 perl --version
19     to see installed version.

21 zeus 305 STEP 2.1
22 andy 64
23 andy 94 Now you need make/nmake to continue. You can skip this step if you have
24     installed MS Visual Studio. The next article
25 andy 64 http://johnbokma.com/perl/make-for-windows.html
26     explains what to do and what to make, but shortly go to Microsoft's
27     Q132084
28     http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q132084
29     and download nmake
30     http://download.microsoft.com/download/vc15/patch/1.52/w95/en-us/nmake15.exe
31     Run the downloaded file to extract it and copy both the NMAKE.EXE and
32     the NMAKE.ERR files to your Perl bin directory, normally C:\Perl\bin.
34 zeus 305 STEP 2.2
36     In case to get functionality of Contact SHeet Generator, you'll need
37     ImageMagick pakage. Download it from:
38     http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php#windows
39     In installation menu choose "With PerlMagick"!!
41 andy 64 STEP 3
43 andy 81 Now download all dependencies (like ExifTool), unpack and install them,
44 andy 64 using nmake command instead of make. Use cpan for needed modules like
45 andy 94 running (automatic mode)
46 andy 64 cpan Image::ExifTool
47 andy 94 or by cpan shell starting with (manual mode)
48 andy 64 perl -MCPAN -e shell
50     STEP 4
52     Just like you installed dependencies, you can install renrot now:
53     perl Makefile.PL
54     nmake
55     nmake install
57     You are ready to go!
59     NOTES:
61     1. To unpack tar.gz-files you can use WinZip (make sure that you extract
62 andy 81 files including full path, especially for ExifTool), or use free
63 andy 64 utility 7-zip
64     http://www.7-zip.org/
66     2. Be sure to call NMake.exe instead of make command.
68     3. One of the dependencies is jpegtran from libjpeg library and they do
69     not provide binaries for Windows platform. To be able to rotate images,
70     you must build it from source code yourself or download from this site
71     http://sylvana.net/jpegcrop/jpegtran/
72 andy 111
73     4. Use double quotes instead of single in command line for disabling
74     misinterpretation of arguments.

76 andy_shev 505 5. Read contact sheet related section in renrot manual and renrot.conf
77 zeus 305 file for font choosing.

81     Installation process for a WinCE devices is not trivial. Please, be accurate
82     when you make installation. Using renrot and exiftool scripts on PDA is useful
83     for device that has built-in camera such as FSC Pocket Loox 720.
85     First, you need to install Perl and Image::ExifTool to Pocket PC or another
86 andy_shev 505 PDA. Visit the following site and get the lastest perl distribution according
87 azsp 315 to platform (usually ARM for Pocket PC):
88 andy 173 http://perlce.sf.net
89     There you can found detailed installation instructions for perl. Also we
90     recommends to install the PerlIDE GUI that helps with scripting very much.
92     Second, additional modules should be installed for starting ExifTool:
93     File::RandomAccess
94     Simple way to install is a copy their as-is from your PC perl distribution to
95     the %perllib% on PDA.
97     RenRot and ExifTool's several functions are not working now due to precompiled
98     perl does not contain strftime().
