in reply to Building Perl with the free MSVC tools

I downloaded the compiler as well, but I'm not planning to do something as ambitious as compiling Perl.

As long as I can compile the odd CPAN module, I will be happy. Do you know which --if any-- libraries I need to download for that?

    I'm recompiling Perl because I believe strongly in compiling XS modules with the same compiler I compiled my Perl with - and the current Perl binaries were compiled with VC6 while I'm using VC7, a discrepancy that will most likely be trouble, or so I imagine.

    On the other hand, I haven't got Perl to compile yet, so I'm still stuck on VC6 myself :-)
