Re: (Q)how to use perl in cygwin-b20?

Thanks for tips about B20's Perl .

My original folder structure for cygwin was like this:

I placed all the new folder, /usr/local.., unpacked from
 under C:\cygwin\cygwin-b20\.
And then, I put new path including C:\cygwin\cygwin-b20\usr\local\bin at

When I run perl for specific configuration file, it brought out the
following error,
"Can't locate in @INC (@INC contains:
/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.00503/cygwin32 /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.00503
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/cygwin32 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl .)
 at ../src/build_tools/ line 27.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ../src/build_tools/ line

How can I adjust the library path in order to let them search
/c/cygwin/cygwin-b20/usr/local/lib instead of /usr/local/lib...?

Huh.., I don't have even "man" command to read *.man manual.

Thanks so much.
