XML::Parser on Mac OS X I needed to fiddle with XML::XPath on my powerbook today, it depends on XML::Parser. Complacent with how most unixy things I want to do JFW on Mac OS X, I dropped down to my CPAN shell and typed "install XML::Parser" -- bzzzt!

It turns out that expat is not installed, grrr. So I fired up Fink Commander and had it gimme some expat lovin'. Tried it again -- bzzzt! This is what I did in the CPAN shell

cpan> o conf makepl_arg "EXPATLIBPATH=/sw/lib EXPATINCPATH=/sw/include"
cpan> install XML::Parser
-- ding-ding-ding! We have a winner! XML::Parser installed! Thereafter, XML::XPath JFW'd and I'm on my way.
