I've been experimenting with Strawberry Perl on the Travis Windows Environment, which uses Git Bash as the shell environment: https://github.com/theory/winperl-travis At first I tried to use `prove`, but Git Bash isn't able to find it. This build demonstrates how it can find `cpanm` but not `prove`: https://travis-ci.com/theory/winperl-travis/builds/97101958 When I have it look in the bin directory, it shows `prove.bat` is there, but not `prove`: https://travis-ci.com/theory/winperl-travis/builds/97102382 Note that both `cpanm.bat` and `cpanm` are present. Perhaps Git Bash runs the non-batch variant of scripts, and that's why it can't find it? If so, should Strawberry get `prove` to go along with `prove.bat`? Are there other utilities that need the non-batch variant to support shell-like environments on Windows? Looks like some of the `pod2*` scripts are missing, too. Best, David
