Actually, no. Perl will look at the Config entry $Config{cc}, which with ActiveState would be some version of cl, the Visual Studio command line compiler. The ability to use either Visual Studio or MinGW was added by ActiveState employees. See the perl5-porters mailing list for details.

    Feature added by ActiveState is not feature of ActiveState. It was added to perl, its a feature of perl.
