I just tried the following:
- Uninstall perl from cygwin using cygwin setup.exe
- installed Active Perl 5.8 on window.
- use the cygutils perl.exe stub as described on
- Now when I try latex2html, I get other errors,
and when I try to build latex2html, I got zillions
- So, I removed Active Perl, and the perl.exe stub,
it is just not working, and reinstalled
cygwin perl again from setup.exe. And back to
debugging this perl to see what I can find.
If I know at least anyone out there got latex2html
working on cygwin, this will give me hope.
