  • I think PXPerl (http://pxperl.com/ [pxperl.com]) comes very close. CPAN.pm even comes preconfigured, it just works out of the box. I've tried it with the MinGW compiler, and modules like DBI and DBD::SQLite, as well as Data::Dumper::Streamer, all compile and test alright. That is: those XS modules that are standalone. The next step is modules that require external libraries... :-/

    If this, in your opinion, a winner, then I'd prefer the price to go to the person that is responsible PXPerl — and that isn't me.
    • I've been watching PXPerl for a while, and it's bloody close.

      But unfortunately the original author has gone AWOL and not been heard from in 2 months.

      It currently fails points 4 and 7.

      If someone can fix that so that the compiler stuff all installs as well, the reward is yours to allocate as you see fit. The PXPerl author certainly isn't around to claim the prize at the moment...
      • The PXPerl website explains what is happening. The author is a student and is rather busy at the moment. I would rather see someone step in to help kick PXPerl over the top. It is *really* close.
