The nice thing about Strawberry is that you can use ppm to install modules. Try using that and hope that someone has already compiled the module.

    Yes - and it *is* available from the bribes repository:
    ppm install http://www.bribes.org/perl/ppm/JavaScript.ppd
    Cheers,

      yes but the repo bribes is not for 5.12 on win32. Update possible?

    I was under the imression that an important aspect of Strawberry Perl was to free Windows users from having to rely on pre-compiled modules?

    Not saying that using ppm is "wrong" or anything, just curious.

      It is. The problem, SpiderMonkey doesn't build easy on win32/mingw, there are no binaries available, and you can't build JavaScript without SpiderMonkey.
