Here is what the screen prints:

This is perl 5, version 30, subversion 2 (v5.30.2) built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread-64int

Strawberry Perl is being used on a win32 XP machine and is generally running well.
The failure to load Font::TTF appears to have been a not uncommon complaint from people using other
PC/Perl configurations.
