in reply to Is there a Native Perl for Windows 10 Arm64

Good point. I am seeing other open-source applications I use generating arm64 binaries.

Strawberry Perl is my go-to for Windows Perl, but I don't see that they have published any arm64 builds for distribution.

I peeked at Strawberry's support page for where to file bug reports or feature requests, and looked through both their rt.cpan.org-based issue tracker and github-based issue tracker, and there don't seem to be any requests yet for a Windows Arm64 build of Strawberry Perl. Maybe you would be interested in making a request there.

    Thanks you. Filed a tracker for Strawberry Perl. The response was they are ready to port but largest blocker is that MSYS2 does not support arm64 windows yet. Also Filed a case at ActiveState Perl, but still under consideration. For my current solution: I got the source from perl.org and did a cross compile on a Windows x86_64 + VS2019 and a-lot of Makefile tweak. Thank again for your help.

      Wow !!
      Do you feel like writing up precisely what you did, and posting it here ?
      It's the sort of thing that some other(s) would find useful.

      Out of idle curiosity, I'm wondering whether the win32/Makefile was the *only* file in the perl source that needed tweaking ?
      (I'm also a bit interested in knowing the details of the cross compilation ... though it's unlikely I'll ever be building perl for arm64.)

      Cheers,
