Perl on Windows Server 2008?
Does Perl work on Windows Server 2008 (and Win Server 2008 R2)? Is there a distribution for these OS?
yes it does. you need to get the active perl: http://www.activestate.com/activeperl/downloads
There are several Perl distributions for Windows. The most common is ActivePerl. However, you can't use the standard CPAN archive since you might not be able to compile some of the modules. Other people prefer Strawberry Perl just for this reason. It comes with a compiler that works on Windows.
