Hm... I checked the readme file and yes, you are right. The message
there may lead to confussion. Especially for people who see the
module for the first time and as good citizens start from reading
the readme file.
The installation section in the readme should be definitelly changed.
5.8.x is a standard now and binary distributions are created for this
release. Dennis, Ernesto - what are your opinions?
Dave, I misunderstood you post. I thought you were talking about
installing Win32::GuiTest in general, whereas your question was how
to install it on perl 5.8.4. Please accept my apologies.
