Searching for mysql_config executable in setup fails on windows #5

I suspect because it has the .pl extension when installed on windows and it cannot be found by findExecutable in here

also note that unless cygwin or some other posix/unix emulation layer is installed, .pl files cannot be executed directly. You have the run the command perl

Perl is included with the Haskell platform on windows, but the perl executable is not in the PATH.


also the perl included with the Haskell platform cannot run the failing with Can't locate File/ in @INC (@INC contains: .) at line 39. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at line 39.

Maybe there is another way to get the information?

mysql_config not found on windows #3


@ghost I've worked around this by installing and changing Setup.hs to include call to perl instead, see

more in bos/mysql#3
