Strawberry Perl Portable 5.10.0 Alpha 1 Released

[ #36855 ]

This is the first release of Strawberry Perl Portable Edition for Mobile Devices and Flash Drives (or whatever the hell it ends up being called).

Firstly, please note this is extremely alpha. In fact it's SO alpha that it's basically just whatever is on my test flash drive, zipped up with no packaging at all.

To install, simply unzip it absolutely anywhere you like.

The code that implements portability can be found in the Portable:: modules, and the bootstrapping mechanism involves hooks in, CPAN/, File/ and CPAN::Mini::Portable.

To run a Perl program, invoke it via "X:\yourpath\perl\bin\perl".

CPAN installs SHOULD work.

The .bat file program launches, however, do NOT work, so don't even try.

That said, feel free to play around, break, and critique it.

Let me know how it goes. Being VERY alpha, I do expect things to break.

Thus endeth the implementation phase of my Perl on a Stick grant.

The next phase is the build phase, where I do the necesary hacking to be able to generate Portable editions via the Perl::Dist toolchain.
