Subject: strawberry-perl-5.30.0.1-64bit.msi -- 'perl -d ' problem --
Date: Sat, 21 Sep 2019 21:43:12 +0000
To: "bug-Perl-Dist-Strawberry@rt.cpan.org" <bug-Perl-Dist-Strawberry@rt.cpan.org>
From: "Townsend, Paul" <aab@purdue.edu>
I just installed strawberry-perl-5.30.0.1-64bit.msi and attempted to run a debug session (see attachment) with no script specified and the debug module screamed a bit.  I usually (on *nix OSs) specify /dev/null but Window does not have it.  It does have nul however.  Unfortunately, strawberry-perl considers both of them as real file references.

Question:  does strawberry-perl handle references to /dev/null properly?  I note (via grep -r /dev/null) that there are a bunch of references to it.
