in thread gzipped tarballs, CPAN, winzip, and all that

I get "unknown command make" from the command prompt. The NMAKE that comes with the Microsoft C++ compiler is so unlike make (they kind of missed the point; it doesn't do forward-chaining logic if I recall) that I don't think it would work. What 'make' do you use on a Windows system?

    If you have Windows versions of tar and gzip on your path then "nmake dist" will work with the Makefile.PL file shown by Beatnik.
