in reply to RFC: A guide to installing modules for Win32 (2022 Edition)

LGTM - though a couple of minor nitpicks.
One thing I might change is to replace the first occurrence of "make" in make & make test & make install with "perl Makefile.PL". (And similar wrt the "gmake" and "dmake" variants of the same expression.)
And perhaps those occurrences of & should be changed to &&. I'm finding (in cmd.exe shell) that if I run perl Makefile.PL & gmake test & gmake install then the module gets installed even if gmake test failed.

Thank you for creating that tutorial !!

    For the &, I had originally intentionally picked the ;-equivalent single-&. But after the comments that I shouldn't, I decided to put it into a table, so that it has the traditional presentation of the recipe, which is a four-line sequence rather than a single command.
