ASE2 CARD CATALOG ENTRY
Welcome to the binary distribution of Perl for the Win32 platform. This distribution has been compiled using the Borland C++ compiler (version 5.02). It is built around the latest production release of Perl, version 5.004_02, which comes with Win32 support.
Please note that this distribution is not to be confused with the pre-5.004 Perl port by the Activeware folks, or the binaries they distribute (which are mostly referred to by "build" numbers).
This bundle contains almost everything you will need for using Perl on Win32 platforms. It also contains everything needed to build, test and install additional perl modules from CPAN that you may not find in here, provided they use the standard MakeMaker extension build tools. Since MakeMaker needs a `make' utility, a Win32 binary of Dennis Vadura's `dmake' tool is supplied (see below for more on `dmake'). For using this distribution to build extensions that need a C compiler, you will also need either Borland C++ 5.02, or Visual C++ (version 2.0 and later).
