SPUG: Inline.pm for Windows!

Thanks for the pointer. User's of Inline.pm on ActivePerl will need the
nmake utility *and* the cl.exe compiler. I don't suppose there's a place to
get *that* for free, is there?

Anyway, a free nmake is good for people who just want to install pure-Perl
CPAN modules on ActivePerl. Inline also works with Perl compiled under the
Cygwin porting layer, which is a free and complete Unix layer for windows.
It has the entire glibc, gcc, bash, etc.

Hi Brian,

If you're using Visual C++ just for the nmake utility, and not for some
feature of the IDE, then you can just download nmake from Microsoft.  (At a
much better price!)

Go to ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/Softlib/MSLFILES/ and scroll down to
nmake15.exe (~52k).  This is a self-extracting/installing executable, which
just puts nmake, an error log, and a readme file in whatever directory you
launch it from.  Fairly painless.
