04:18 rns I was able to set up Marpa dev env (with cweb and ability to make releng) with your help in Cygwin only — https://groups.google.com/d/msg/marpa-parser/65lIp8qCjHM/1kawZiKP1mcJ
04:19 rns and that allowed me to produce patches to the Marpa--R2 repo.
04:26 rns On windows that would require cweb — http://www.literateprogramming.com/cweb_download.html — and Miktex — http://miktex.org/ — with additional effort to find all the fonts and git
04:28 rns I didn't try that because I was happy with cygwin so that didn't seemed to be worth the effort.
04:35 rns to test marpa under windows, you can use strawberry perl or download free microsoft c compiler and build perl from source (which I did)
04:37 rns re free MS compilers — 2010 seems to be time-limited (30 days + another 30 days by registering), so vs express 2008 can be tried — http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15318560/visual-c-2008-express-download-link-dead

19:11 jdurand_ Re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2014-08-22#i_9225831 - for git I recommend the windows's github client: install it, and do never use its gui, except perhaps for the credentials the very first time -; instead open the "git shell" - you will have full git command-line power as if on linux
19:12 jdurand_ I personnally have install a lot of GnuWin32 packages, so that, in the DOS, I can do, which, ls, rm, cp, cd, etc... as on Linux, but without cygwin
19:12 jdurand_ otherwise, go with cygwin, although I always avoided that
19:15 Aria YEaaaah. I'd go msys rather than cygwin.

20:00 jeffreykegler jdurand, Aria, rns: thanks!
20:00 Aria Of course!
20:01 jeffreykegler I'll install both cygwin and msys, and then se which way I gravitate.
20:31 Aria Have fun with that!
