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

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)

[ambrus]: Corion: from the docs, it definitely looks like it would be possible to write an AnyEvent driver for it using Prima::File and Prima::Timer.
[ambrus]: (I haven't found an idle event.)
[ambrus]: However, I also looked at the internals, and found two interesting things:
[marto]: stupid xpath question, I have a xpath copied from the browser, is the * wildcard supposed to work for IDs? e.g. '//*[@id="*"]/ div/div/header/p/a '?
[ambrus]: The main loop for unixish systems is in https://metacpan. org/source/ KARASIK/Prima-1. 49/unix/apc_app.c. It is a hand-rolled select loop, but also always spins at least once every 0.2 seconds for some reason.
