was actually wondering if installing the activestate TCL/TK would possibly bring with it the perl bindings.
in regards to weird windows pickings of which program runs..it's quite silly that it's not transparent what command is picked. the rules are known, but that's as good as a kick in the shins when you really need to know. not only is path order taken into account, but specific executable file types are run in preference of .exe. quite useful when you want to override. i think batch commands in a .cmd even override the builtins inside of command.com e.g. "dir". but it's a pain to find that the cygwin grep (if memory serves) is overriden by windows resource kit.
the hardest line to type correctly is: stty erase ^H
