in reply to Active Perl Offline Package on Windows

I suggest you to move from Win32 to Linux. Perl born in linux, many settings are already setted or waiting to be set in a easy steps. Occurence of such problems may be continued if you remain using the windows.

    I'm sorry but this is less than helpful. Suggesting someone change platform purely to get a module installed is frankly bad advice. First of all, many people don't have the freedom to pick and choose which OS/products they use in a working environment. In a great many cases this simply isn't an option. Secondly, Perl was born before Linux, claiming otherwise is factually inaccurate.

    "Occurence of such problems may be continued if you remain using the windows."

    So if they installed Linux the machine would magically be connected to the internet? You are aware that ActiveState Perl has shipped with cpan for years?

    For the record I prefer Strawberry Perl to ActiveState and Linux to MS Windows.

    Larry Wall began work on Perl in 1987, while working as a programmer at Unisys,8 and released version 1.0 to the comp.sources.misc newsgroup on December 18, 1987. Perl 2, released in 1988, featured a better regular expression engine. Perl 3, released in 1989, added support for binary data streams. Perl 5.000 was released on October 17, 1994.
    vs.
    The defining component of Linux is the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released 5 October 1991 by Linus Torvalds. In March 1994 Torvalds judges all components of the kernel to be fully matured: he releases version 1.0 of Linux. The XFree86 project contributes a graphic user interface (GUI). In this year the companies Red Hat and SUSE publish version 1.0 of their Linux distributions.

    Sorry, Perl was not born in Linux, Perl was born before Linux. Stay bigoted, but at least have the dates right.

      To many linux means *nix

        Perhaps, but this isn't accurate either.

        Those many should not tell others what operating system to use as they apparently have it rather blurred.
