Is there any documentation on compiling my own version of Strawberry? I
don't see any source code mentioned on the web page.
Well - you could just build your own perl from source using (say) the
compiler and dmake that shipped with Strawberry.
You just grab the official perl 5.20.0 source, put your strawberry/c/bin
folder at the beginning of the PATH, edit the (largely self-documenting)
win32/makefile.mk appropriately, then cd to that win32 folder and run:

I knew that PDK programs require ActivePerl. Hopefully I am not right, but
if I am, StrawberryPerl may need to pretend it is ActivePerl, and I don't
know if this is legal.
I know that some newer versions of ActivePerl can't work with older versions
of PDK, but a PDK upgrade is required, so there are some restrictions,
probably for commercial reasons.
In some cases other solutions than perlapp (PAR or perl2exe) are simply not
working. If is the case of XMLTV also, writing on ActivePerl mailing list
and asking for adding some modules and libs in ActivePerl can be a solution,
at least for the future.
