[IMPORTANT] Issues using Perl API client installation

Hi,

I am trying to use Perl API for retrieving data from Elasticsearch.
I am using Elasticsearch in windows cygwin.

I need help with installing perl api and using it. I tried the following:

1. Installed cpan in cygwin and tried installing using cpan
Search::Elasticsearch. I get the following error
:

cpan[3]> install Search::Elasticsearch

Is there any manual way of installing the perl-api client?

2. Installed Elasticsearch-Perl-master as a plugin in elasticsearch. Is it
correct? What is the use of this Perl-Master?

I am struck for few days trying to install the perl client api. Need
urgent help.

Thanks,
Vilas

You must set environment variables CC, CPP, CXX to the proper gcc programs
before ES Perl client build is calling the configure/make.

This is a Cygwin setup problem. Although off-topic, I recommend to run

cygcheck -s -v -r -h > cygcheck_output.txt

and post the result text somewhere so Cygwin experts can examine it.

You may find it easier to use Strawberry Perl for windows
