Subject RE: Need help running Ant under cygwin on Win2k
Date Tue, 18 Jun 2002 20:20:01 GMT
I use ActivePerl as well, but I can't just run "somescript.pl" from a DOS
prompt on Windows.  So, I would need to change my Ant files to do "perl
somescript.pl", which is not a big deal, but is ugly.

you dont need cygwin to run perl; ActiveScript perl runs happily on raw
windows. I know, I use it
