in reply to New-to-Perl: recommendations for windows setup?

There have been a few mentions of ActiveState perl.
Based on my experiences of it of a few months back, I would recommend that you avoid it ... unless you are looking for something that will substantiate your Windows prejudices.

Cheers,
Rob

    My transition from ActiveState to Strawberry started shortly after writing Installing Template::Toolkit on Windows. I have never had the sort of installation problems with Strawberry that I had with ActiveState. They may have been fixed, but that does not prevent their reappearance.
