By default ActiveState doesn't come with a C compiler, or build tools.

True, but (at least for 32-bit ActivePerl) ActiveState's repository does include PPM modules for dmake and MinGW. Once those are installed, ActivePerl is then able to install any module from CPAN (including XS based modules). Of course, the big catch is access to the matching ActiveState repository. For older versions of ActivePerl, that will require purchasing support from ActiveState. (I believe that there are extra steps and/or caveats to get 64-bit ActivePerl to have the appropriate/compatible compiler and tools in order to install modules directly from CPAN.)

Currently, my preference is to use Strawberry Perl. For any businesses that need/require a higher level of support and are able to afford it, ActiveState's ActivePerl may be a better solution for them.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
