I use cygwin with bash. Works just like unix.

I do once and a while have a problem with interactive programs (like
cpan). The auto flushing isn't working. If I get 512 bytes it comes out
but for prompts and commands that isn't workable. There probably is some
fix but I haven't found it yet. Of course the cpan for perl cygwin works
fine. In a perl program I can set $| on STDOUT but I don't want to mess
with programs like ppm and cpan because they work fine with a dos

There is also a bash for win32 but I haven't tried it yet. Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
