in reply to Newb guidance for Perl on MS Windows: Cygwin, Strawberry, ActivePerl?

Sorry to be slightly repetitive, but when I've been forced to use Windoze, I've always gone down the Strawberry perl route if, for no other reason, than the fact that it's so much more flexible - good though it may be, I found AS to be lacking in the availability of the right/needed PPM(s) whereas that has never been a problem with Strawberry ... but then again, I try and avoid M$ orientated contracts wheresoever possible.

In the words of the GB House of Parliament, 'I refer the honourable gentlemen to an earlier answer I gave the house' :-)

A user level that continues to overstate my experience :-))

    You can use the MinGW compiler with ActivePerl, too. In fact, I believe there's a module installation available, to get it to work.
