Very good news!
As a compiler-challenged user of Windows XP, I felt left out every time a module needed to be compiled and no PPM-package was available.
I installed the minimal shell "MSys" and from that shell ran the CPAN-module and it works like a charm.
Giant vistas open on the horizon. What shall we do next? Recompile Perl itself?
