in reply to Free MSVC tools + Activestate to compile CPAN Modules

As a small, Perl-only starter set for the Unix Utilities, I now avoid downloading and installing cygwin and use the Win32 Unix Utils as found on http://unxutils.sourceforge.net, as the three programs needed by Perl are only tar, gzip and wget for good measure. With these, the ugly errors of mismatched cygwin1.dlls are gone, and these three programs are easily put where the perl.exe binary resides too.

    Yes, good point about the cygwin dlls. Also, make sure that your windows Perl is in your path *before* cygwin, otherwise you might end up using cygwin's perl by default.
