in reply to Perl on Windows Best Practices?

Others have covered most of the information that I could share on the topic of your post.

About half the PCs are XP/x86, and the other half are Windows 7/x64. Some CPAN modules work on x86 but not x64 (e.g., Win32::SerialPort).

It's been my experience so far that the Win32 modules that I've used on 64-bit Windows work just fine. I guess that could change with future Windows operating systems.

Also, since I personally don't have any scripts needing features like 64-bit integers from 64-bit Perl, I've been using 32-bit Perl on 64-bit Windows without any issues so far.

[Your Mother]: Putin is a bad guy but heís not that kind of bad guy. (Who would launch.)
[erix]: fortunately, Putin seems to be ill -- or at least, they're building a hospital for him and his cronies in Moscow
[erix]: nobody knows what kind it takes :)
[erix]: I say his seems a face that launches a thousand missiles :)
[Your Mother]: I say I do. :P
[Your Mother]: Missiles would be an idiotís play. Putin is many things but he is not an idiot.
[erix]: I like the idea of the trumps troup of imbeciles growing slightly nervous now their incompetence will be tested
[erix]: you seem forget there is another idiot coming :)
[Your Mother]: The US government does not attract talent, but grafters and liars and it has been that way for the better part of a century. FEW exceptions.
