Strawberry Perl is super simple to install on Windows using one of the msi
files.  It includes a lot of packages.  For me, adding more has been as
simple as using 'cpan install' from the command line.

It even includes a fully functional C compiler and infrastructure so no
problems installing XS modules (thank goodness).
