Re: Building perl5 for cygwin32

     I'm using Yep-Perl build 1 from this site, and it seems to work fine, 
     so far.  However, the installation directory tree is very 
     non-standard, starting as it does in /qub.  I started to install it in 
     a way more to my liking (and more consistent with Linux-like file 
     structure), and found that the /qub tree was built into some of the 
     scripts (such as perldoc).  
     Does anyone know how much trouble it would be to move the Yep-Perl 
     into a more standard directory structure?

Why not just grab the ready-to-go Perl/Cygnus distribution from Pete 
Jordan's excellent website?
Follow the "software" links and you'll find Perl.
