in thread Installing CPAN on a Windows system

Can you point me to a quick guide on getting MinGW working with active state and CPAN ? I have downloaded and installed MinGW, my cpan shell runs and I have NMAKE. As cpan was looking for cl not gcc I make a copy of gcc to cl and added the MinGW\Bin to my path, apart from disliking a few options gcc runs but now nmake dies as it can not find link.

    Just a guess, but CPAN may be looking for cl.exe because it found nmake in your path. For MinGW/gcc, you should be using dmake rather than MSVC's nmake and cl. Among other places, you can find dmake on CPAN.
