  • I don't use Windows, but don't Windows users have to download and install a specific make utility in order to use MakeMaker to install modules?

    • 1. Nobody is using 5.005 on Windows.

      2. Everybody that matters is now using Strawberry Perl, and doesn't have to download anything. :)

      3. Anyone that isn't, should probably be using PPM files, and the ActiveState build farm is the only thing that needs make.

      • Can Strawberry install TT on Windows?
        • Is this a trick question? :-)

          I just installed SP and TT (for Catalyst) twice this week on win32 without any problems. (one a real win32 machine, and one in XP in parallels
          • No. I have not used SP and had read (might have been a while ago) that TT was an issue. Or at least I thought it was TT or maybe it was DBD::Oracle come to think about it.
            • TT did have some issues on Win32 not long ago but they have been fixed.
            • The problem was on all Win32, not just Strawberry.

              The TT issues are quite fixed now, and Andy has started releasing test releases to the mailing list first, for Win32 people to check, before he does the uploads.
      • That makes sense, although your first and second rules sound awfully close to mine.
