www.activestate.com makes installing perl on Windows very easy. Very
very easy actually. They have a 'PPD' utility to install pre-compiled
perl modules as well.

Poor you. Fortunately libcurl runs fine on windows too! ;-)

Back on the February 20th 2002, João Carriço asked a question about
installing the perl binding using cygwin on windows
(http://curl.haxx.se/mail/archive-2002-02/0131.html) but unfortunately, there
was no one around that could help him.
Cris Bailiff is our perl binding maintainer, but he neither knew how to do
this on windows: http://curl.haxx.se/mail/archive-2002-02/0155.html
This is in fact more a question of how to use perl on windows and how to
install perl extensions on Windows.
I have absolutely no clue. There must be some clever guys in better forums
than this that have answers to this problem.

Take a guess! ;-)
The interface is very basic and incomplete, if I understand it correctly. I'm
eagerly waiting for people to contribute improvements...
