  • On a windows XP box that has never had perl installed, CamelPack does not get a working CPAN for me. Yes, it correctly installs ActiveState perl, dev-c++ toolchain and nmake. However there is no gzip, and no (gnu) tar installed. Without those two binaries, CPAN is pretty much useless. CPAN will start up but even a "cpan Bundle::CPAN" will not get very far! I'm also having problems even finding a pre-compiled gnu tar binary > 1.13 (which is already too old it seems for CPAN). So I fail to see how this perl distro can claim the beer prize.
