sdesc: "Larry Wall's Practical Extracting and Report Language"
ldesc: "Perl is a high-level programming language with roots in C, 
sed, awk and shell scripting.  Perl is good at handling processes 
and files, and is especially good at handling text.  Perl's 
hallmarks are practicality and efficiency.  While it is used to 
do a lot of different things, Perl's most common applications are 
system administration utilities and web programming.  A large 
proportion of the CGI scripts on the web are written in Perl.  
You need the perl package installed on your system so that your 
system can handle Perl scripts."
curr: 5.6.1-2
test: 5.8.0-1

setup.hint perl_manpages:

Please feel free to down-/upload to

This perl is compiled with gcc-3.1.1-4.

The module DB_File which is linked against Berkeley DB 4.0.14 is
already included, but will be no major problem because you can
run perl whithout having DB4 installed and if you need it you will
be able soon to fetch DB4 via the Cygwin mirrors.  Until it is
available you can fetch the unofficial release from Nicholas
webserver, just point setup.exe to
and fetch the libdb4.0 package which contains just the DLL's.

Also the manpages are packaged separately now.

Well, since I have trouble with the Cygwin version of Apache
it may well be that Apache breaks during transmission.
If you have problems, please contact me with a CC to
