Well, start playing :-).  I'd suggest going into /root/cdk-4.3.10/examples,
running a make, and checking that the make works, and the ensuing
executables do interesting CDK'ish types of things.  (draw menus, text
widgets, and whatnot)

Once that's going, unpack the cdk-perl stuff (into a clean directory, perhaps)


perl Makefile.PL

if you get an error, let us know what it is.  Errors I have seen involve not
finding the  CDK .h files, you fix that by editing the Makefile and changing

INC = -I/usr/include/ncurses -I/home/glover/local/include/cdk

to something like:

INC = -I/usr/include/ncurses -I/usr/local/include/cdk

around line 95, as I recall

if you get a build, run 

make install

and you should be away.  To test it, go to the demo directory, and do a 

perl fulldemo

and see if it works.  If it does, you're underway
