Non ActiveState Python/Perl

Jun 8, 2013
Warsaw, Poland
Dear Mr. Rex.
Please consider support for non ActiveState Python and Perl in the future.
The reason is: ActiveState products are not free in commercial environment, while there exist distributions available for commercial use for free. Lets say CPython and Strawberry Perl to name them.
Best Regards.

What about Strawberry Perl? I'm using it since several years, without any issues.

Have you used it as embedded Perl (i.e., calling the perl dll from a Windows app)? Unless the Perl developers have done a bunch of work lately on the Windows port (seems unlikely), there are a host of problems when running Perl inside a Windows app.
