  • Well, it seems to me that you made some lucky guesses. I didn't. I wish these were tips on a welcome page, either a HTML page that the installer opens at the end, or on an introduction page on Strawberry Perl's website, with the link shown at the end of the installation.

    Something like this:

    Welcome to Strawberry Perl

    • Strawberry Perl put itself in your PATH. So go ahead, open a cmd console window, and type "perl -V".

    • Strawberry Perl comes with a preconfigured CPAN.pm, a make tool, and a C compiler. Everything you need to install modules. Click on the "CPAN Client" link in the start menu, and you can start installing modules from the CPAN shell.

    • But that may take quite some time! Strawberry Perl now can also install precompiled modules via PPM. Open a console window, type "PPM" and you're in our console based PPM shell, ready to go.
