    Can you shed light on why the CitrusPerl website was gone for so long? Just curious if you know.

    I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth.

    You forgot to mention what it is / why it matters.

      You forgot to mention what it is / why it matters.

      You can always click and find out -- wxPerl in a box, make any script launchable as a file.exe, turn the bunch of them into a self installable exe ... or even a genuine perl distribution (like a clone of citrusperl), for mac/linux/windows

        From "Citrus Perl is a binary distribution of Perl created for GUI application developers. The distribution includes wxPerl, the Perl wrapper for wxWidgets. Where supported by the operating system wxWidgets is available as a package for the 2.8.x stable branch and the 2.9.x development branch. Several other modules are packaged including GD, DBD::Pg, DBD::mysql and Tk for users wishing to migrate existing Tk code to Wx. Additional modules can be built from CPAN as with any other Perl installation. For Windows users, a package of the gcc compiler is available and can be installed from within Citrus Perl itself if required. Distributions are available for MS Windows, Linux and MacOSX. The distribution is provided under the same Artistic License as the packaged Perl. The current releases of Citrus Perl can be downloaded from the sourceforge project site."

        I downloaded and installed the stable release version(Perl 5.16 and wxWidgets 2.8.x) last night(10/11). I had to also install freeglut3 for use by OpenGL and as mentioned in the installation document.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
