Alien-wxWidgets (0.67)

Currently I cannot install the CPAN module Alien::WxWidgets<br>
When I run "cpan force install Alien::wxWidgets", the operation fails, stating that it can't connect to sourceforge.net. <br>

Error message stated:

Fetching wxWidgets...

Fetch failed! HTTP response: 500 Internal Server Error 500 Can't connect to svwh.dl.sourceforge.net:443 at inc/My/Build/Base.pm line 306.

Can someone help me out? I badly need to install the CPAN modules Alien::WxWidgets, and Wx, so that I can then install Padre. Alien::WxWidgets, and Wx, are Padre dependencies.

One of the signs of a great module is that I don't have to even read the documentation to have it do what I want. That's exactly the case with Alien::wxWidgets. I unpacked it, built it, used the defaults, and now I have wxWidgets installed on ActiveState Perl 5.10 on Windows. Perfect!
