Perplexing message on command line.
I'm using Windows XP (sp3) and ActivePerl 5.16.3I suspect that it's *not* ActivePerl that's being run when you run perl -vPerhaps it's the perl that ships with msys ?Try running C:\perl\bin\perl -v
(Modify accordingly if ActivePerl is located in some palce other than C:/perl.)
