Re: Strawberry Perl

That extension code wouldn't be binary compatible with Strawberry Perl
Actually, such code *is* generally binary-compatible with ActivePerl - unless you mix x64 and x86 builds. (And the compatibility generally holds the other way, too.)
If you happen to download an old version of Strawberry that wasn't built with -mms-bitfields it's possible to strike trouble.
And if you grab the -Duse64bitint build of x86 Strawberry Perl, then you *do* lose binary compatibility with x86 ActivePerl.
