  • Now I need to build another Vanilla :)
    • Can I help you in some way?
      I'd be curious to find out how (and if I manage to) build a vanilla/strawberry from scratch.
      • The basic sequence goes...

        1. Install Inno Setup 5

        2. Install Strawberry Perl

        3. svn checkout http://svn.ali.as/trunk/Perl-Dist [svn.ali.as]

        4. cd Perl-Dist

        5. cpan .

        6. perldist Vanilla

        The svn version of Vanilla is extremely dynamic, it changes potentially daily since I use it kind of like a scratch pad for new ideas, successful completion is unpredictable at times.

        Currently, Vanilla tries to install relocatable configuration modules (and fails, which is what I'm working on atm), expat, XML::Parser, libwin32, and Win32::API.

        The whole process, from "perldist" to a complete .exe installer, takes maybe an hour.
