Here’s the first big blog post I’ve seen about Strawberry Perl: How to install and set up Strawberry Perl

I am writing this article with much joy and glee…. Active State no longer has a monopoly on the issue of Perl on the Windows platform

I haven’t read the Strawberry Perl docs, since I’m Windows-free. The blog post gives details about what tools are necessary to make the install, with links to the tools.
Now, I thought that part of Strawberry Perl was that you wouldn’t need any external tools, but maybe they’re just for building CPAN modules.
