Maybe Devel::Size can't work on Cygwin? (Strange, but possible...)
It only inspects Perl's internal structures, so should run anywhere Perl does, but since I don't use Cygwin, I neither know nor care.
Why not run your script native for the purposes of solving your problem? Either on a native *nix platform if that's your target and your reason for using Cygwin (though developing under an emulator is a silly idea). Or native Win32 if that your target. (If so, why use the emulator?)
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
