There has been a native perl port for Win32 available since 5.004.
The current release 5.004_04 should compile out of the box with MSVC or
Borland C.  Check out for more information.

I also have patches for an earlier version of perl available on my web
page: .  Unfortunately, they no longer
apply cleanly to newer versions of perl.

I am hoping that most of the workarounds necessary in this patch will
disappear when B19 hits the streets.  The only major incompatibility that
should be left is the loading of dynamic libraries.
