in reply to Running/Testing Perl on Windows -- binaries, compiling

Well I'm guessing your new to perl so let me offer you a book that helped me greatly. First off you're probably thinking of using an O'Reilly book to get started they are good but not as simple as a true newbie book. O'Reilly tends to use a lot of complexity. To get started I suggest "SAMS Teach Yourself Perl in 21 Days" After that the O'Reilly book will be super easy. Then you can move onto more complex Perl if you're trying to attain Perl purism. I'm still learning. Perl is my first language. The next book after those two (It's more or less a really nice supplement but it would be wise to go thorugh it because it contains some of the more complex issues with Perl) This book is O'Reilly's "Programming Perl". Just go to or your local Media Store. Have fun!

[ambrus]: Today I accidentally cut my hand while carrying a computer. On the display part of the motherboard that sticks out at the back of the chasis and has ports, there's this thin metal sheet with holes cut for the ports, to guide plugs into the sockets.
[ambrus]: This sheet has sharp needle-like parts, 0.004 long and less than 0.001 wide, that can get bent to point outwards, and one of these cut into my palm when I lifted the box.
[ambrus]: So now when I choose what motherboard to buy for my new home computer, I have one more specific property to guide me. Useful, because there's so many different boards to choose from.
