Hi,

There is also Strawberry Perl, which works fine with CPAN.

    Well said that man.

    But it doesn't stop there ... it is even better than AS perl, since it [Strawberry Perl] is bundled with GUN C compiler and make:-)) Self-evidently, the compiler is of most use when attempting to install modules having XS elements etc.

    That being said, it's worth it for make(1) alone - why bother with M$ nmake when you don't have to ?

    A user level that continues to overstate my experience :-))
