That's fine the basics are quite straightforward once you get used to

The source code comes with the distribution (see the files section in
this group). Part of it is Perl and another part is C/C++. If you
don't have a C++ compiler you can use PPM (just type 'ppm' from a DOS
window) to install the binary version that also comes with the
The 'eg' subdirectory of the distribution has several interesting
examples that show how to use it. The 't' subdirectory (or the
test.pl file in older distributions) contains some tests that you can
also use as examples.
You'll need to have the Win32 version of Perl installed. And you'll
need to now how to run Perl scripts.
