I'm new to bioinformatics and recently started learning Perl. I found several rival distributions available for Windows platform, which confuse me at the begining.
I google it and found that Strawberry comes with additional dev tools to compile CPAN modules if necessary. Whereas ActivePerl has a lot of prepackaged modules which are easier to install with PPM. In addition, DWIM Perl contains the standard Perl and a lot of extension and Citrus Perl is a binary distribution of Perl created for GUI application developers.
Now, I wonder what should I pick to get started?
Note: I am going to use BioPerl in near future.
