probably asked before...

I would like to branch and tag (copy) externals together with the main
project. The only possibility seems to be using

But how to run it on windows?

This sounds like a suspicious idea.
What if your externals select a branch already?


I cannot comment on that.
Why would there be a difference?

To the *** comment: sorry, but I don't want to start a philosophical
discussion on that ;-) Just take it as: it is our requirement

To the second: the correct answer would have been: e.g. download
ActivePearl for Windows. I figured out on my own

Thanks anyway ;-)

Don't be afraid of philosophy.

You can question stupid requirements.
At times, that's the only reasonable thing to do.
Much better than to wait until a time bomb explodes.

Besides, you can use perl under CygWin as well.
And I cannot guess that you would not know of ActivePerl.
I could as well have said then: turn the power on first.
