I was wondering how Strawberry Perl compiles DBD-Pg for 64-bit Windows.
In http://strawberryperl.com/release-notes/18.104.22.168-64bit.html I see that
PostgreSQL driver DBD-Pg is included in Strawberry Perl 64bit. I was
wondering how it is done. I did have a look at
https://github.com/StrawberryPerl? in an attempt to discover if anything
special was done, but was unable to find anything.
In strawberry perl 22.214.171.124 there is
1/ client library postgresql-9.4.1 built with this little patch (you should
find it in your c:\strawberry\licenses\postgresql\postgresql-9.4.1.diff )

2/ perl module DBD-Pg-3.5.1 installed by simply running: cpanm DBD::Pg
I have experienced some troubles related to DBD::Pg + 64bit mingw-w64 when
trying to build perl with extra compiler option -D__USE_MINGW_ANSI_STDIO I
have not investigated why but DBD::Pg fails even to compile (no other
module had a problem with __USE_MINGW_ANSI_STDIO).
