Perhaps, using Strawberry Perl is a valid alternative for you?

When I'm on Windows, I use Strawberry Perl.
-- Larry Wall

I don't know if that is true, but I had no problems with nmake and friends when using Strawberry Perl. It just works. Installing SB-Perl and ripping nmake.exe out might also work? It's a bit fat, though (but lighter than the driver-package for a modern graphics card ;-).

From their web-page (my emphasis):

Strawberry Perl is a perl environment for MS Windows containing all you need to run and develop perl applications. It is designed to be as close as possible to perl environment on UNIX systems.

It includes perl binaries, compiler (gcc) + related tools, all the external libraries (crypto, math, graphics, xml ...), all the bundled database clients and all you expect from Strawberry Perl.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
