I believe I tried that route already. I think the problem may have been
that I couldn't find the shapelib C library compiled for Windows. I
looked for Windows binaries for the shapelib library but didn't find
them. Your documentation points to a URL
(http://gdal.velocet.ca/projects/shapelib/index.html) for the required
shapefile C library. I get a dead link when I try to access this URL.
I think that was why I gave up before and tried the 'gen2shp' option.
Is there another location for this library?
If a CPAN module can do it all, in Windows, then I'm on board!
