Subject: Under cygwin, cygwin's 'cpan' is used instead of Strawberry's 'cpan.bat'
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 956b
I have a strong Unix background, which is why I have a very complete Cygwin environment installed on my PCs, so they can add least be used for something useful. And have fun while doing that. I have installed 3 perls on Cygwin: Cygwin's perl in /usr, perl-5.8.8 in /pro and perl-5.10.0 also in /pro. I have also installed Activeperl. I installed Strawberry to test my modules with and wanted to install the base modules I need. First thing was to write a script that starts a "Strawberry Perl Shell": --8<--- /C/Bin 502 $ cat sperl-sh #!/bin/sh PATH=/C/strawberry/perl/bin:/C/strawberry/c/bin:$PATH export PATH bash $@ -->8--- When I intuitively type /C/Bin 501 $ cpan V to install V, it is installed in the cygwin environment, as /pro/bin/ cpan is used instead of /C/strawberry/perl/cpan.bat I'd suggest to add /C/strawberry/perl/cpan. I have no fixed idea about what type of file it should be (perl, sh, bash). I created a symlink in cygwin

In the current incarnation, Strawberry Perl is considered incompatible with other Perl installs and wants to be the only Perl installed on the machine. There has been some discussion of what would be required for creating a "secondary mode" where Strawberry doesn't try to dominate, and we do have some ideas on how to do it. But for the current generation, I don't expect to see it added shortly. You may want to keep an eye on Vanilla Perl (the experimental version) where this sort of functionality would appear first.

As noted earlier, Strawberry is not compatible with cygwin. Closing.
