Hi Punit,

Please make sure that you use 'reply to all' when responding so that this
gets seen on the BioPerl mailing list, too.

I have never tried installing Perl on Windows, but if you read the BioPerl
installation guide for
Windows<http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/Installing_Bioperl_on_Windows>that
I pointed you to, you'll see that a straightforward ActivePerl
installer is available. So you shouldn't have to install Perl from the
source code.

Again, I haven't done it personally, but I would expect that the ActivePerl
installer allows you to specify where it installs Perl. This would enable
you to keep your existing Perl 5.6 installation and have a separate Perl
5.8.x installation for use with BioPerl.

According to the BioPerl Windows installation guide, once you install
ActivePerl, there is a Perl Package Manager with a graphical interface that
makes it very easy to install the latest version of BioPerl.
