Re: Which versions of Windows are still supported ?
Message ID:

I know this may be out of scope of this discussion, but there are a few
projects that try to support Perl on Windows.

One example is strawberry perl which is still on Perl version ( ). If Im not mistaken, the only project that
has allowed for a most recent version ( version 5.34 ) of Perl to work on
Windows is ActiveState Perl ( ) which has a cross OS platform
that allows the same Perl build to run on different OS environments.

Should we learn from these projects to support its efforts or does it make
sense to have an internal p5p just working on supporting Perl on Windows ?

Thank you for your time,

Charlie Gonzalez
