Strawberry Perl is all-inclusive

| 1 Comment

Yesterday's article about Strawberry Perl referred to a blog post with incorrect installation instructions. All the downloading and installing discussed is just not necessary, even for CPAN installations. According to Adam Kennedy:

The install and setup process for Strawberry Perl is to uninstall any existing Perl, run the installer, and then run "cpan" or run it from the Start menu. There is no additional installation required.

I have not yet tested what Adam said, as I have not upgraded as of yet, but I am sure he is correct. But again, please know that the article posted on thescripts.com is written for Strawberry Perl 5.8.8 Alpha 2 and not the 5.10 version. Once I actually upgrade to the newer version I will put in an update to the article.
