I've been using ActiveState Perl and Cygwin together for years and
have only one complaint: Setup keeps hassling me about dependencies
and I have to make sure always to uncheck Perl in the setu list (and
again in the dependency check) or I end up with two Perl
installations, which I don't want.Would you similarly complain that you already have del and dir and not
want rm and ls?
I wish Setup could recognize that I already have a Perl installation...
Personally I dislike ActiveState Perl. Things like setsid just don't
work and signal handling is not reliable (that may be better). Plus
things written for ActiveState sometimes don't port easily to
Linux/Unix. This is not the case with Cygwin's Perl.
