in reply to New-to-Perl: recommendations for windows setup?

WSL 2 is a good option. You can run Perl under Linux and edit it using a Windows editor. It's only a bit complicated because of the file paths, as the WSL Linux runs in a VM that has the Windows filesystem mounted somewhere. But on the pro side you eliminate all the windows oddities, don't have to worry about the c-compiler or shell globbing issues.

Also there is a Bash fow windows.

    I heard of WSL here before but did not think about it till you mentioned it now. Good to know that it does work and removes all that hassle. I will try it.
