    According to the error messages, it is the actual patch saved as patch.pl. Of course, that can't work (patch).

    Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)
      How do I use what is specified? I have installed the windows sdk and cl and patch are not commands that do anything.

      Could you specifically tell me how to use the patch?

        So what happens if you type cl at the prompt?

        This is what happens on my system. I also have to type "vcvars32" or "vcvarsall x64" at the command line to "load" the C compiler into my console.

[shmem]: perl -e 'warn "test$/", ^@^ '
[Eily]: well, at least it's right about warn doing the same thing as die :)
[shmem]: same with undef as last element
[msh210]: oh, good point. It's the best kind of correct
[shmem]: msh210: but I'd not call it a lie outright. That's when you do know the truth.
[msh210]: I don't have sendmail (I'm on MS Windows), so does one of you think you can report the bug?
[shmem]: msh210: 'tis about time to tell the sad truth to perl5porters - via perlbug
[msh210]: probably whoever wrote that actually knows the truth
[shmem]: msh210: you can save the perlbug text in a file and send that via your mail agent of choice
[msh210]: hm, okay, I'll try, thanks
