Re: perl 5.6.* package

Thought I read there're problems with perl 5.8 on windows?

Under the Scope section, it's printed in bold "_don't_ use Perl 5.8.0 yet"

Have you tried it? It would be great if it works.

The last time I tried it it worked ok. They shouldn't give impossible advices.

perl UTF issues are solved for a long time now.
And I don't know of any outstanding bug. (summer 2003)

They do recommend:
cywin-1.3.9, Apache 1.3.27,  Cygwin perl-5.6.1-2

But I a have much better apache setup than they recommend.
For example they recommend also:

"You must use the Cygwin shell to do this (unless you are a Perl expert) - don't use the Windows command shell, cmd.exe (aka DOS Prompt). Change #!/usr/bin/perl -wT to #!c:/cygwin/bin/perl -wT . Example script to do this (explanation):
* $ perl -pi~ -e 's;#!/usr/bin/perl;#!c:/cygwin/bin/perl;' *[a-z]"

This for example is easily circumvented by using the
"ScriptInterpreterSource registry" directive in the twiki apache <Directory> section or by using the old cygwin apache.

Sorry, I won't give more advice.
I have pretty much to do on my own phpwiki, than fixing twiki and perl installation problems.
Any modern WAMP installer does a decent job with a typical apache/perl installation.

ask at the twiki mailinglists.

How/Where can I download an older version of the perl package?

Why would you want to? google for a perl-5.6.1-2.tar.bz2 from a stale mirror? (That's the latest one I have any record of, don't know if there was a 5.6.1-3.)
