in reply to Which Perl for my new XP box?

If you do also web development, you could try WAMPP from This is a combination of Apache, Mysql, ActivestatePerl (mod_perl or CGI), PHP for Windows (with addons like phpMyAdmin, OpenSSL and the like). It is very easy to install, and I like to use it for development boxes under Win2k and WinXP.

I prefer using it in combination with the command line tools from cygwin (installed with Windows line endings) where I get tools like tar and so on required by CPAN and CPANPLUS. I just don't like the CPAN's configuration of WAMPP (told the author, but no response); but if you delete the CPAN-configuration file (e.g. X:\wampp1\perl\lib\CPAN\ and then restart CPAN (perl -MCPAN -e shell), then you can enter your configuration easily.

Best regards,
perl -e "s>>*F>e=>y)\*martinF)stronat)=>print,print v8."
