MHonArc, originating under Unix, keeps a lot of data in memory so it rarely

Windows-managed) memory.  A different port of Perl will help.

I sugest that you install NTPerl 5.  Works fine with Windows 95.  

Avail via CPAN sites:

Once you pick a FTP archive site near you, navigate to the directory:

to see which file you should download.
