Free MSVC tools + Activestate to compile CPAN Modules
Your advices are low quality.
- What should eb done for step 5? Its frustrating. For sure, there will be many breaks on that step.
- Are you sure you have minimal set of downloads to do the task? For sure, the task could be performed with much less amount of garbage.
- In case you beleive you add something usefull, why not proposing appropriate documentation patch to perl5developers? (AFAIK there were some postings in p5p recently about your topic)
There are resaons why I do not insert tips for, say, compiling Perl for WinCE devices, despite of fact those could be useful because of growing amount of WinCE users roaming around. Those belong to their place.
My point of view -- your posting must go to p5p and not here.
