I know there is a perl for Windows NT. I don't know about the
Macintosh or Windows 95.
I think it would be a good idea to use perl in the installation on all
platforms. What I was trying to say is that I imagine the "typical"
Windows or Macintosh user would not be doing the installation from
scratch but instead would be using the tar-ball format appropriate for
their system. The only people who need to have perl for Windows or
perl for the Macintosh are those who will create the tar-balls.
