in reply to Help with porting issues to Win32

&bull Here is a List of modules compiled by active state both Term::ReadPassword and Term::ReadLine::GNU are listed but old (both are ppms for Perl 5.6)
&bull If this is an Activestate Perl, then the compiler used is MS Visual C++ 6.0. So this would require the set up of a Windows (pref 2K or XP pro)system as a build machine.
&bull I don't think Cygwin would help because the reasons meantioned above, It does not play well with Win32 native apps at times.

Update: A quick look see at CPAN of the source of the two modules appears that to these highly untrained eyes to be pure Perl modules. so just nmake should be all that is necessary to build them
