Re: Building a module from CPAN on a Win32 machine.

in reply to Building a module from CPAN on a Win32 machine.

I don't know an awful lot about Perl on Windows. I do use ActivePerl on Windows from time to time, but only with fairly modest requirements in terms of CPAN modules.

As I understand it, Strawberry Perl has a better reputation than Active Perl for building modules from CPAN.

perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

    Yes, I think I agree that it has a better *reputation* ... but, while it's generally no worse, it's not really any better (IMO).
