Perhaps I stated that too strongly... or less than clearly.

I'm not saying that "to have Perl as part of Xampp" is "not enough"; merely that -- IMO, YMMV -- that's doing it the hard way.

Further, I've never explored the code in Xampp and friends closely enough to say "a newer version of Perl than the one in the distribution could or will cause problems" but updating Perl requires that you update your modules, as well, and -- as newbie Linux users, especially, find out -- that's problematic, if you're replacing the "system Perl." Now, there is no such thing in MS windows packages, but Xampp's Perl may not be totally stock... or the modules to which you might have to upgrade might not have the tweaks Xampp's packagers introduced.

Come, let us reason together: Spirit of the Monastery
