O'Reilly Capitalizes on Perl Conference

O'Reilly & Associates (Sebastopol, Calif. www.oreilly.com) took advantage of the captive audience at its second annual O'Reilly & Associates Perl Conference in San Jose to release its new Perl Resource Kit - Win32 Edition, based on the new version of Perl for Windows 32-bit platforms. The kit includes the complete distribution of Perl 5.005, the first version of Perl for Win32 that is completely compatible with the core version of Perl. As a result, Perl users will no longer need separate distributions of Perl for Windows and Unix platforms.

The kit also contains books, Perl modules and Perl tools from ActiveState Tool Corp., including the GUI-based Perl Debugger, Visual Package Manager, PerlCOM, which enables access to Perl scripts as COM objects, PerlCtrl, which turns a Perl script into an ActiveX control and pl2exe, which turns a Perl script into an executable.
