Installing modules is different. With ActivePerl, people usually use pre-built PPM packages. Pure Perl modules can be built with CPAN but it is harder. Getting the right compilers for building binary modules is a challenge.

Perl comes from a Unix background and certain idioms depend on that. The emulation in Windows can be imperfect. For example, fork() behaves the same but has different side-effects.

For your purposes, the networking internals are completely different. I assume there is an interface to packets since there are Windows firewall products but the API isn't well known and is probably complicated. On the other hand, the Linux networking is more transparent. There are interfaces for tapping into packets from the kerne (netlink sockets). There are ways of doing transparent proxying.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
