Subject Re: Windows and Linux Perl Client

Hi Jeremy,

I don't have exact experience to help you but your plan seems doable.
The SWIG documentation for Perl on Windows doesn't list any obvious
limitations that look like they will get in your way.  I'm pretty sure
any lack of development libs would have been noted there.

In your shoes, I would look for a stable Windows version of perl that
is as close to your Linux version as possible (to start, you can try
later releases another time).  Make sure that your qpid and perl libs
match in bit-ness (all 32 or all 64 bit).

You may have to teach CMake where to find your perl installation.
There is also a high likelihood that the swig wrapper will need some
TLC.  With luck, it will boil down to just appeasing quirks of the
Microsoft compiler with some casts here and there.  If you find that
memory management is the source of wrapper compiler errors, you will
need to proceed with more caution, but the docs should help you figure
out what the swig layer is trying to do when crossing the boundary.

If you run into problems, post back here.  If you get it working, a
JIRA and associated patch would be most welcome.
