Subject: ARGV Bug
Date: Wed, 27 Apr 2011 18:06:15 +0000
To: "" <>
From: Stephen Webb <>
I could not figure out why I could not get @ARGV to show anything. I am running Windows 7 64bit. The fix was easy, but it did not work out of the box. See: Also the strawberry installer did not append to my path the location of the bin's.
