Perl on Cygwin?

Sun Sep 18 08:26:00 GMT 2011

So I'm trying to run the config file for a program in Cygwin, but it says I
need Perl 5 before I can proceed.

I've searched through cygwin packages, I don't see a Perl package, only
ancillary packages. I type "perl -v" in cygwin and perl is not recognized. 

So where do I get Perl for cygwin? I've gone through the same thing for
msys... perl is nowhere to be found.
