in thread Perl and CMS

I wouldn't be so hard on Cygwin. I had good expiriences with it (mostly with perl-only CPAN packages, but some XS worked without problem), and my colegue from work happily runs quite complicated database driven site on Cygwin (using PostgreSQL which doesn't even exist in native version1).

On the other hand, I would watch out for coLinux which looked quite promissing last time I checked. It's free alternative to VMWare. It seems to have limit of 196Mb of RAM which might not be enough for production site, but than again I wouldn't recommend running production site on emulator anyway (been there, done that - it runs much better on real hardware :-)

1: yes, I know that next version (8.0) of PostgreSQL will have native Windows port (there are native versions currently, but only commerical).

    I didn't mean to be hard on Cygwin. I use it anytime I'm stuck with a Windows box and have to get some work done. If anything I'm being hard on Krang for assuming a whole lot of Unix stuff that doesn't work on non-Unix platforms, of which Cygwin is just one.

[Lady_Aleena]: erix, right, it searches files for a pattern. pcregrep is supposed to do the same thing with the addition of being able to search multiline.
[erix]: ah, pcregrep is a stanalone program?
[Lady_Aleena]: erix, yes.
[Lady_Aleena]: pcre stands for 'Perl Compatible Regular Expressions'.
[erix]: ok, ok, I thought you meant the engine
[perldigious]: Tanktalus: Ha, understandable, that does make it harder when you don't want to move. I assume you are looking at remote work from home jobs too?
[Tanktalus]: yeah, I'm looking at a lot of remote work - I've been working from home since 2002, so I know how to do the work from remote, I just need a new employer ;)
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, I wouldn't know how to get a script to do what the greps do in one line.
[perldigious]: Even working for a large software engineering contractor that's willing to do remote could be an option. The fortune 500 company at $job-- I worked for had quite a lot of that work to hire out to large contractors.
[perldigious]: The pay and benifits leave a lot to be desired though, or so I've heard...
