Yes it does. Here is my version:

$ perl --version

This is perl 5, version 22, subversion 1 (v5.22.1) built for

$ which perl

As you can see this is the msys version: "x86_64-msys-thread-multi"

Yes I am and I have tried it. It works perfectly for me. Please try
installing msys perl (I don't use msys a lot but I think the command is
"pacman -S perl")
