Re: Catalyst on Win32 !!!
in thread Catalyst on Win32 !!!
I don't want this to sound rude or disrespectful, but my_ question is: why would you want to develop with Catalyst on Windoze? in fact, why would you want to even use Windoze in the first place!
I used to say things like that a lot more frequently, but after a while I realized, there's no point in saying that. Windows is here to stay, many people develop on it, and with the new tools Microsoft is coming out with, Windows is becoming friendlier to developers (PowerShell is incredible!) and while it's not my first choice to develop on, the fact remains, it's there. Chiding someone for something which may very well be paying their rent doesn't help.
For that matter, TAP::Parser is slated for the core to replace Test::Harness. Given that if it breaks on Windows, we've broken the toolchain for potentially tens of thousands of users, do you think that not paying attention to Windows would be a good thing?
