in thread Errors when using DProf to profile

We all hate windoze. and Cygwin is really a pain in so many ways. I'm all Linux all the time at my office.

For my windoze laptop and in windoze shops, I'm now using VMware Player with a fedora core 5 community released guest os from thoughtpolice. It is very nice to have Linux running in full. and you can just say yum install this or that instead of that cygwin hoop jumping.

and you can lose the early versions of Perl.

    That sounds like a good solution.

    Unfortunately for me, my users need to run stuff on specific *nix boxes connected to $1e6++ equipment, to avoid transferring GBs of data over the network to PCs. They're not very interested in spending several hours transferring both ways, on top of the run time for the applications.

    But I'm slowly getting them educated, so someday they wrangle the infrastructure to work for them, and not the other way around.
