20:19 plicease Alien::bz2 now supports Visual C++ Perl
20:20 plicease I think that is a first for Alien::Base to have a package install on VC Perl
20:33 willthechill plicease++
20:33 willthechill I will eventually need to upgrade A::astyle to support VC++ as well, bulk88 and I have hand-compiled astyle & RPerl for VC++ but it is... complex
20:44 plicease Also generally applicable hints on supporting OS packages on VC Perl are welcome here:
20:44 plicease https://github.com/plicease/Alien-Build/issues/3
20:45 plicease For me the big challenge is getting autoconf packages to work reliably on VC Perl.
21:33 nshp joined #native
21:47 plicease incidentally cpan.org is returning 404 for it looks like all of my dists
21:47 plicease including Alien-Base naturally.  so use a different mirror if you are having probles as I am
21:47 plicease also this came from a discussion on freenode #perl:
21:47 plicease https://github.com/Perl5-Alien/Alien-Base/pull/180
21:56 willthechill where is the 404 you are seeing?
21:57 plicease https://travis-ci.org/Perl5-Alien/Alien-Base/jobs/197797047#L223
22:00 plicease seems to be working on my workstation again.
