Trying to install opencv on perl

I have been trying to install opencv on perl. I type cpan install Cv in command prompt. Then I get an error message that says can’t link/include c library, ‘opencv_core’, aborting. What does this error message mean?

this package?

contact package maintainer. that package is not affiliated with OpenCV. also, it’s dead.

or look for an alternative.

What do you mean it’s dead?

“dead” meaning no activity since 2013.
