in reply to Which one is better, Active state or Strawberry Perl ?

This website: http://www.perl.org/get.html is a good place to start. From the second paragraph:

We recommend that you always run the latest stable version, currently 5.16.2.

In light of this advice, you may wish to consider the most recent versions available in the various Perl-for-Windows distributions:

Name Website Perl Version
DWIM Perl for Windows http://dwimperl.com/windows.html 5.14.2.1 (Strawberry Perl)
Cygwin http://www.cygwin.com/ 5.14.2-3
ActiveState ActivePerl http://www.activestate.com/activeperl 5.16.1
Citrus Perl http://www.citrusperl.com/ 5.16.1
Strawberry Perl http://strawberryperl.com/releases.html 5.16.2.1

Hope that helps,

    Only some of those are Perl versions. If you want that table to be useful, only use Perl versions in the Perl Version column.

      I don’t understand. All the versions given are indeed the versions of Perl included in the distributions.

      All the versions may be easily verified via the links given, except for the Cygwin version, for which it is necessary to run setup.exe.

      Or am I missing something?

        perl version numbers are 1.2.3 (or 1.002003) not 1.2.3.4 or 1.2.3-4

        5.14.2-3 is perl 5.14.2 (5.014002)

        5.16.2.1 is perl 5.16.2 (5.016002)
