in reply to Installing Unicode::Tussle On Microsoft Windows With ActiveState ActivePerl

How about just downloading from CPAN and doing the magic incantation:

perl Makefile.PL ([dn]?)make ([dn]?)make test ([dn]?)make install

You could also use the CPAN client from the command line:

cpan Unicode::Tussle

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    It seems this package simply is not designed for Windows. (Not surprising given Tom's utter disdain for Windows.) I finally used…

    cpan -f -i Unicode::Tussle
    

    …and it installed. Whether or not the utilities will work remains to be seen. At least five dependencies wouldn't install successfully no matter what I tried (which wasn't much, frankly).

    The perldoc pages are unusable on Windows because they're UTF-8, which Windows doesn't support. (Code page 65001 doesn't work.)

      The problems seem to be more crap packages -- missing files:

      and crap tools:

      As for the docs: have you tried browsing the html versions.
