it's really more about the freedom to be able to install any module from CPAN I may need without being held hostage by the lack of a package than about compiling perl.

I have found package support poor and to date I cannot make DBD::Sybase/Oracle work on anything above 5.6.0

> ppm> install DBD::Oracle

I get:

Searching for 'DBD::Oracle' returned no results. Try a broader search +first.
evn after adding the esoftmatic repository that olivierp pointed me to... and if I download the files myself and install them e.g. /ppm install DBD-Sybase.ppd/, trying to use I get errors:
perl -le ' use DBI; use DBD::Sybase; '
The context allocation routine failed. The following problem caused the failure: Invalid context version.
it is SO painful to work in w2k! ah!!!
