Announcing Demosten's Perl distribution for Win32

Today I published the first version of my Perl distribution for Windows. My idea was to create a distribution which could fully take advantage of CPAN. This means that you need a C/C++ compiler and make program together with some Unix tools like gzip, tar, less etc. I've added a Perl Scripting Engine (thanks to Atanas Kolev). The distribution also contains several simple scripts to provide a documentation with TOC and to add and remove directories to/from path environment. There is also a simple program written to relocate perl and the compiler to specified directories. The distribution has no additional license limitations and all our code is distributed with the same license as Perl itself.
