  • It's a little touchy, but it does work using perl 5.10.1 (haven't tried 5.8.9 yet). Getting some warnings about missing DLLs during the test phase, primarily expat or libxml-related (not sure why).

    Also getting tons of 'Subroutine X redefined' warnings, which are pretty harmless but it would be nice to track down why they're popping up. These also occur when testing BioPerl with ActivePerl.

    • I think I know why the "missing DLL's" message pops up... Sometimes the Strawberry installer needs a log-out/log-back-in (a reboot works just as well) to register the path entries it adds to the environment - which it needs to find the dll's. I don't know how to determine when it happens, I just know that it happens.

      I noticed the "Subroutine redefined" errors, too. :)

        Okay, good. May be worth a retry then.

        This also pops up via one of the CPAN Tester reports [perl.org]

  • I think the links should have an extra dash in "strawberry-perl":

    http://strawberryperl.com/download/strawberry-perl-5.10.1.0.msi [strawberryperl.com]

    http://strawberryperl.com/download/strawberry-perl-5.8.9.3.msi [strawberryperl.com]

    • The links were corrected, but unfortunately use.perl always grabs the first version of the article, before the corrections.
