I've been using it under Windows using the Cygwin perl distro.

    So is it a general rule that XS modules using *nix distros only work with Cygwin?

    Or are there exceptions?

    Sorry I'm pretty ignorant about XS interfaces of packages ported to win.exes.

    Cheers Rolf


      Not always, but I have pretty good luck. I can't think of any counterexamples right now, though I've run into them. But most of my perl work is bog-simple stuff, so I'm not stretching the envelope, either.
