I am aware that Cygwin gcc (according to AS) cannot be used to build the AS Perl dist, but I'm taking a stab that I can use it to build modules...

I've managed to build the AS Perl dist using mingw.

I also found (though I may have been lucky), that I could build perl/xs modules with mingw against my mingw perl, then package them up as a PPM and install them on a regular ActiveState perl. As I say, I may have just been lucky with the modules I've tried that with.

update: You could also try ExtUtils::FakeConfig, which is meant to allow you to "allows to build modules for ActivePerl with MinGW GCC" (from the readme)

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.
