... assuming there's a ppm
ed version of the module you wish to install - I switched to using Strawberry perl (http://strawberryperl.com/
) on Windoze because:
- An increasing number of the modules I wanted weren't available and ...
- I didn't want the bloatware that is the M$ dev environments just for the compiler & linker/link editor and ...
- I found that nmake didn't understand all too much of the standard make(1) script generated by some of the Makefile.PL scripts... and the rework effort needed just wasn't worth it and...
- Strawberry perl provides a standard make(1), compiler & linker/link editor for free.
A decision I wished I'd made an awfully long time ago - I now actively envangelise Strawberry perl for Windoze.
A user level that continues to overstate my experience :-))
