Perl 10.1.0 doesn't build on Cygwin

[ #40101 ]

Is building on Cygwin not supported any more, I take it? Did we forget about it?

  • Ah, I see. I think it just doesn't like the parentheses in my PATH, due to items in the "Program Files (x86)" directory.

    I can't really blame it for missing that. I don't much like it, either.

    • Lo, and behold, if I'd follow my own advice [perl.org], I wouldn't have had the problem.

      It's been way, way too long since I built a Perl from source.

  • 10.1.0 ? you come from year 2097 ?

    • Heh; no. Apparently I was just pretty flustered.

      Oh, and I spend too much time in the world of Sun Microsystems version numbers, which are constantly promoted from version "1.5" to version "5," and so on (look at Solaris and Java for examples).
