I did try to see what is in $contents and nothing was there.

Do you have a functioning perl already built on your machine ? If you do, try running the following script. (In that script you'll first need to change $filename to point to the full path to pod/perldelta.pod on your machine.)
## script.pl ## use warnings; use strict; my $filename = 'C:/comp/perl-5.16.3/pod/perldelta.pod'; open RD, '<', $filename or die "Can't read: $!"; my @c = <RD>; my $contents = join '', @c; close RD or die "Can't close: $!"; my @want = $contents =~ /perldelta - what is new for perl v(5)\.(\d+)\.(\ +d+)\n/; die "Can't extract version from $filename" unless @want; print "\n@want\n";
That script should reveal that @want contains (5, 16,3). Is that what you get ?

Then try running the same script using the perl that you've just built with your compiler. (That perl is located in the top level source folder - ie one level up from the win32 folder.)

To do that, cd to that top level source folder and run perl /full/path/to/above/script.pl.
How does that fare ?
(While you're in that folder, you might also like to check the output of perl -V just to verify that the perl that's being run is, in fact, the one that you've just built. The @INC listing at the end should *not* contain a site/lib directory, and the first directory listed should be in your source tree. )

Sorry - out of time for tonight, but I can pick this up again tomorrow morning if need be.

Cheers,
Rob
