Re: activestate perl on cygwin

Not to anybody here. There are various solutions to your "problem", some
involving a wrapper script in a shell such as bash or handling the
situation in Perl itself. Being as this list is about Cygwin the
emulation environment itself, it's clear that "how to write a bash
wrapper script to call some thing outside of Cygwin's purvey" or similar
in Perl is definitely off topic by definition. If you cannot see that
distinction then I don't know what to tell ya. Cygwin is made to work
with Cygwin, not <arbitrary Windows oriented application>. That part's
up to you to implement with the tools provided.
... there is nothing Cygwin-specific about writing such a wrapper
script. As I said, any good bash tutorial would have contained enough
information for you to write one. Since this is not a bash support
list, discussion of techniques for making such scripts work is off-topic.
That's debatable, the distinction is vague at best.
