jptxs has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

After a few trys, I've figured out I can't seem to install any of the Win32 modules on my linux box (maybe that's a problem unto itself, but I suspect not). Perhaps I'm silly for thinking I could. But I'm faced with having to try and retrieve win32 perf counters from a linux box, or, at least, some unix box. I've been searching for a while and not finding a solution. Perl seems the natural choice, but does anyone have an idea if/how it could be done?
