Your skill will accomplish
what the force of many cannot
At http://www.devside.net we have been building Perl 5.8.x for some time now with VS.NET 2002 (that links against msvcr70.lib and uses the msvcr70.dll that comes with .NET 1.0/1.0a)
We have a guide for building Perl under win32 with VC++...
(it is a very simple task)
Iím not exactly sure what the problem here is, but to clarify a point...
MSVCRT.dll is the Microsoft C Runtime Library.
If you use MS VC++, your programs will only link and run with specific versions of this file; managed code or not.
(the version of MSVCRxx used by the compiler cannot be changed or specified by the user)
VS98 links only against msvcrt.lib (or maybe even an earlier version)
VS.NET 2002 links only against msvcr70.lib
VS.NET 2003 links only against msvcr71.lib
I would assume that the free MS VC++ 2003 toolkit would only link against MSVCR71.lib
msvcr70.dll is part of .NET 1.0(a)
msvcr71.dll is part of .NET 1.1
Please excuse me if I missed a point, it just seemed to me that there was a difficulty with building Perl under win32 with VC++ above 6.0 in this thread. If someone could clarify, I would be grateful.
