INSTALLATION

You can install RenRot to your Windows platform, but you need to do
several extra steps.

STEP 1

First off, you must have a Perl 5.6.0 or later available on your system.
If you need to install one, ActivePerl can be a good choice. You can get
it here
    http://www.activestate.com/Products/ActivePerl/
Currently you don't have to provide any personal info for download, but
if you are still in doubt, you can try to follow direct link
    http://www.activestate.com/Products/Download/Download.plex?id=ActivePerl
and choose a build for Windows (as msi package - clickable option for
novice, or zip file for more experienced users). Once you have Perl
installed (it goes to C:\Perl by default), you can type
    perl --version
to see installed version.

STEP 2.1

Now you need make/nmake to continue. You can skip this step if you have
installed MS Visual Studio. The next article
    http://johnbokma.com/perl/make-for-windows.html
explains what to do and what to make, but shortly go to Microsoft's
Q132084
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q132084
and download nmake
    http://download.microsoft.com/download/vc15/patch/1.52/w95/en-us/nmake15.exe
Run the downloaded file to extract it and copy both the NMAKE.EXE and
the NMAKE.ERR files to your Perl bin directory, normally C:\Perl\bin.

STEP 2.2

In case to get functionality of Contact Sheet Generator, you'll need
ImageMagick pakage. Download it from:
    http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php#windows
In installation menu choose "With PerlMagick"!

STEP 3

Now download all dependencies (like ExifTool), unpack and install them,
using nmake command instead of make. Use cpan for needed modules like
running (automatic mode)
    cpan Image::ExifTool
or by cpan shell starting with (manual mode)
    perl -MCPAN -e shell

STEP 4

Just like you installed dependencies, you can install renrot now:
    perl Makefile.PL
    nmake
    nmake install

You are ready to go!

NOTES:

1. To unpack tar.gz-files you can use WinZip (make sure that you extract
files including full path, especially for ExifTool), or use free
utility 7-zip
    http://www.7-zip.org/

2. Be sure to call NMake.exe instead of make command.

3. One of the dependencies is jpegtran from libjpeg library and they do
not provide binaries for Windows platform. To be able to rotate images,
you must build it from source code yourself or download from this site
    http://sylvana.net/jpegcrop/jpegtran/

4. Use double quotes instead of single in command line for disabling
   misinterpretation of arguments.

5. Read contact sheet related section in renrot manual and renrot.conf
file for font choosing.

INSTALL TO PDA (EXPERIMENTAL AND UNDER DEVELOPMENT, MAY NOT WORK)

Installation process for a WinCE devices is not trivial. Please, be accurate
when you make installation. Using renrot and exiftool scripts on PDA is useful
for device that has built-in camera such as FSC Pocket Loox 720.

First, you need to install Perl and Image::ExifTool to Pocket PC or another
PDA. Visit the following site and get the lastest perl distribution according
to platform (usually ARM for Pocket PC):
    http://perlce.sf.net
There you can found detailed installation instructions for perl. Also we
recommends to install the PerlIDE GUI that helps with scripting very much.

Second, additional modules should be installed for starting ExifTool:
    File::RandomAccess
Simple way to install is a copy their as-is from your PC perl distribution to
the %perllib% on PDA.

RenRot and ExifTool's several functions are not working now due to precompiled
perl does not contain strftime().
