  • Well you could...but it would be hard to convince me to replace a "stable" ActiveState install with it.
      • From the wiki:

        Strawberry Perl is currently an alpha release and is not recommended for production purposes.

        My PHB would not like me doing that.

        • And your PHP would be right. However, when Strawberry Perl is ready for production, I can't imagine a reason in the world why anyone would want to stick with ActiveState.

          • I don't understand the PHP comment. I *hate* PHP. However, ActiveState works for our shop (Windows) and they have been very helpful when I have posed questions to them.

            Once Strawberry hits a couple beta levels then I will try it. I *do* like the premise behind it.

            • I meant "PHB". Whoops :)

              The nice thing about Strawberry Perl is that it comes bundled with its own compiler and make. As a result, you can use cpan and cpanp just like any other Perl installation. You're not dependent on ActiveState providing you a PPM or hunting around for a PPM from somewhere else.

              That's not to say I have anything against ActiveState. They're a company, they need to earn money and they need to figure out the best allocation of their resources and shepherding a bunch of CPAN module
