Amusing x/platform coding issues

[ #34728 ]
coding on the cygwin platform today, i was impressed by the utter absence, both from the main perl package or in any perl library package of the relatively minor 'Win32' module. However, impressive miss that this is, i don't think this beats the /usr/bin/perl from hpux 11 where 'Config.pm' was considered unworthy of inclusion. Sometimes, i get the thought that people consider cross platform perl code too easy by default, and they try to increase the challenges. Maybe.

  • I'm no expert about installing from source, I as far as I know, Config.pm is generated when installing Perl, and that happanens by running the script configpm [cpan.org], so it appears.
