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

I just used this information to build PPDs for DBD::Sybase. These are now available with the other DBI binaries on http://ftp.esoftmatic.com/DBI/.

    Like shay said, those binaries will depend on MSVCR71.dll, so it's only prudent to at least warn users (one way to warn).

    I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).

      Rats!

      OK - I'll see what needs to be done about that.

      Thanks.

[choroba]: No, if there are no threads, then the user wants to use MCE. If there are threads, the user can choose.
[1nickt]: choroba Understood. I'm wondering about the logic in a cpanfile. If the perl doesn't support threads, it's easy: require MCE. If the perl does support threads, as you say the user has a choice, so require both? Or, assume that irrespective of the choide
[1nickt]: ... choice, the threaded-perl user *probably* wants to use threads, therefore only require threads and leave MCE out, allowing the user to manually install if desired?
[choroba]: just require any of MCE and threads. Not sure if that's possible in the cpanfile, but should be possible early in the Makefile
[1nickt]: The app expects threads as default anyway, right?
[choroba]: that's true
[1nickt]: expects threads *to be* the default
[1nickt]: I think cpanfile can handle the logic. testing now.
