I managed to install Padre 0.10 on "Strawberry Perl Portable Beta 1" when I had PATH pointing to the perll\bin and c\bin directories it then worked if I typed in "padre". then I moved the whole portable directory to another place , now typing "padre" (obviously) does not find it but the problem is that typing c:\p\perl\padre.bat does not work either as it cannot find "perl" if I type c:\...\perl.exe c:\...\padre it works so Editing padre.bat and adding the magic %~dp0 taken from cpan.bat infront of both calls to "perl" solved the problem. Now I can type c:\...\padre.bat or double click the padre.bat and it works. Gabor
Should not be a problem anymore.
