I'm running into the same issue.  I can "create language plperl;"
successfully, but as soon as I try to create a function (as shown above),
Postgres dies.

Guimaraes - did you find a solution using standard installers?
sachin - have you tried on win7?
pasman - what's the process to install from source?

More detail on my setup...

I'm on Win7.

Postgres 9.1 32-bit: (version 9.1.2-1)

Perl 5.14 32-bit, I've tried both:

Here's what I see in the log file:
