Re: Getting/Compiling Perl5 ?

I used it but there are (at least) the following problems:
- It doesnt use the gnuwin-Paths/mounts. So i cant use
  'script /c/abc/... /d/abc/...' without problems because
  i would need to use 'script c:\\... d\\... ' since its
  a "DosPathNames"-Program. If it would be a "native" gnuwin-
  Program Pathnames would be no problem
- When i call other scripts i have to use system("sh scriptname...")
  instead of system("scriptname..."). Probably because perl doesnt
  know about scripts and doesnt call them because its a dos-program.
  So i have massive problems with a set of scripts which calls other
  perlscripts and think its because perl isnt a gnuwin-application.

Because in the gnuwin-Readmes/... often they talk about Problems
with configuring/compiling perl i thought somebody has got it
up and runnning.
