in reply to compile modules @activeperl

I second using dmake as the make utility with ActiveState/Windows. If it is not installed in your Perl distribution already, the PPM for it should be on the ActiveState site.

Good luck. -c

    ActivePerl is built using MS's compiler and nmake. These are actually better choices. MinGW + dmake can be used too. Both combos are freely available.

    Recent versions of cpan and/or Perl's module building toolchain will use MS's compiler and nmake if found, and fall back to installing and using MinGW and dmake if not.
