1 INSTALLATION
2
3 You can install RenRot to your Windows platform, but you need to do
4 several extra steps.
5
6 STEP 1
7
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 novice, or zip file for more experienced users). Once you have Perl
17 installed (it goes to C:\Perl by default), you can type
18 perl --version
19 to see installed version.
20
21 STEP 2
22
23 Now you need make/nmake to continue. You can skip this step if you have
24 installed MS Visual Studio. The next article
25 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.
33
34 STEP 3
35
36 Now download all dependencies (like ExifTool), unpack and install them,
37 using nmake command instead of make. Use cpan for needed modules like
38 running (automatic mode)
39 cpan Image::ExifTool
40 or by cpan shell starting with (manual mode)
41 perl -MCPAN -e shell
42
43 STEP 4
44
45 Just like you installed dependencies, you can install renrot now:
46 perl Makefile.PL
47 nmake
48 nmake install
49
50 You are ready to go!
51
52 NOTES:
53
54 1. To unpack tar.gz-files you can use WinZip (make sure that you extract
55 files including full path, especially for ExifTool), or use free
56 utility 7-zip
57 http://www.7-zip.org/
58
59 2. Be sure to call NMake.exe instead of make command.
60
61 3. One of the dependencies is jpegtran from libjpeg library and they do
62 not provide binaries for Windows platform. To be able to rotate images,
63 you must build it from source code yourself or download from this site
64 http://sylvana.net/jpegcrop/jpegtran/
65
66 4. Use double quotes instead of single in command line for disabling
67 misinterpretation of arguments.
68
69
70 INSTALL TO PDA (EXPERIMENTAL AND UNDER DEVELOPMENT, MAY NOT WORK)
71
72 Installation process for a WinCE devices is not trivial. Please, be accurate
73 when you make installation. Using renrot and exiftool scripts on PDA is useful
74 for device that has built-in camera such as FSC Pocket Loox 720.
75
76 First, you need to install Perl and Image::ExifTool to Pocket PC or another
77 PDA. Visit the following site and get last perl distribution according to
78 platform (usually ARM for Pocket PC):
79 http://perlce.sf.net
80 There you can found detailed installation instructions for perl. Also we
81 recommends to install the PerlIDE GUI that helps with scripting very much.
82
83 Second, additional modules should be installed for starting ExifTool:
84 File::RandomAccess
85 Simple way to install is a copy their as-is from your PC perl distribution to
86 the %perllib% on PDA.
87
88 RenRot and ExifTool's several functions are not working now due to precompiled
89 perl does not contain strftime().
