in reply to Has anyone compared Cygwin Perl to AS Perl?

slightly OT, but you can automate the cygwin install somewhat using setup.ini:

I'm currently trying to use this to get my "cygwin for perl" installation process a bit more sane.

Thanks to corion for pointing this out.


UPDATE: On second thought, setting up a local repository sounds like too much work for just the occasional install.

I'm just keeping my notes on what's needed for building with cpan in a local bash alias.

$ thartman_cygwin_install_hint install under c:/, not the default install under devel make gcc cvs svn ssh under editors emacs everything under perl mkdir /home/hartman and svn co shellenv under there. in windows env vars (right click my computer, properties, advanced) set HOME to /home/hartman add c:\bin;c:\usr\local\bin; to front of PATH (make sure it's ahea +d of c:\windows\system32) if necessary, reinitialize cpan cpan> o conf init
