in reply to Getting filehandle access modes on Windows

I'd like something that's pure Perl, as installing XS code on Windows boxes is not something I wish on anyone
Starwberry Perl makes compiling and installing XS code easy and nowadays even ActiveState Perl comes with a full compiler suite.

A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

    That's good to know. My only knowledge of Perl on Windows has been through following mailing list traffic of struggles to get things to compile with various Windows compilers. It seemed that if experienced developers were having struggles that might prove even more problematic for ordinary users. Maybe I follow the wrong lists.
      Just try it for yourself and you will see if it works for you too.
