Regarding CPAN modules compilation

Hi all,

I am trying to install IO::Tty module from CPAN on my Windows Machine which has Active Perl 5.8.8 Version running.
During the module installation, I get the compilation error.

Following is the error:
#################################################
ERROR: cannot run the configured compiler 'cl'
(see conf/compilerok.log). Suggestions:
1) The complier 'cl' is not in your PATH. Add it
to the PATH and try again. OR
2) The compiler isn't installed on your system. Install it. OR
3) You only have a different compiler installed (e.g. 'gcc').
Either fix the compiler config in the perl Config.pm
or install a perl that was built with the right compiler
(you could build perl yourself with the available compiler).
##################################################

I understand I am missing some compilers, but not sure how to go about this.
I am a novice and hence please help me with your inputs or pointers.

Thanks in advance

Re: Regarding CPAN modules compilation

Hi BS:

In lieu of a compiler (Intel C, Borland C, gcc) you can look at installable packages:
