Subject: pip tool does not work on a clean strawberry installation
Hi, if you try to run pip tool just after successful strawberry perl installation - e.g. like this: c:\> pip http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/X/XY/.../X-1.0.tar.gz You will experience the following error: Unexpected Error: The directory 'C:\strawberry\cpan\sources' does not exist at C:\strawberry\perl\vendor\lib/Module/Plan/Base.pm line 85 The proper fix should go probably somewhere inside pip (or perhaps Module::Plan::Base) but a quick workaround is just simply create the directory C:\strawberry\cpan\sources during strawberry installation. -- kmx

Let me check. I thought I put in code to fix this already - but, it may have gotten in post-October. --Curtis
fixed in Apr2010 - closing
