Re: perl -MCPAN -e shell crashes w98se

Hallo Graham,

Yes, using setup.exe should make it as easy as possible, you find perl
in the category 'Interpreter' or the full listing (and setup.exe is
here: ).

Looks ok.  I really have no idea why there should be an activestate
dirtectory created.

Try `ls /usr/bin` in a bash shell, is it really empty?
This is called a mount.  x:\cygwin\bin is mounted to /usr/bin and to
/bin so you can access the files with both paths.
See also the output of the command `mount`.
