  • You know, I just HATE to be self-promotional, but since you spelled Windoze with a "z" (hopefully implying you hate Windows, and prefer Perl on Unix)...

    Have you tried out Strawberry Perl yet? It's exactly like Perl on Unix, built-in gcc compiler, and a CPAN client that actually works properly, so you don't need PPM modules.

    If you have and didn't like it, any feedback?

      Well, a component of hate and a component of humour: actually I think I'm more a *NIX-kinda-mind, and at a certain point I was much more on Linux than on Windows although for various reasons I never left the latter completely... but since about one year, that is since about when I discovered the disease I've turned mostly into a Windows-kinda-guy, albeit a somewhat unsatisfied one. Actually I've wanted for months to write a journal entry about this subject. The fact itself that I've wanted to do so for months, and did not, should give you a clue... (But if you want, watch for it, it'll come first or later...)

      Yeah, I heard about Vanilla [vanillaperl.com] and Strawberry [perl.org] Perl. (At some point I heard about Chocolate [perl.org] too.) But for one thing it is still deemed experimental and OTOH I must say I'm mostly fine with AS's ActivePerl.

      If you have and didn't like it, any feedback?

      No, but I will certainly provide some if I do. Actually I'm now more concerned with having working tools soon even if unsatisfactory ones for some reason, than with experimenting. So I'm just fine with a web broser, a newsreader, Putty, a working Perl installation and a bunch of "minor" things...
