Thank you. Next time i'll go for perlall then.

I sent a bug report to the Strawberry Perl people.

I rebooted already, so i guess my only option is to uninstall and re-install. I'd like not to have to re-install all the CPAN modules that i have, if possible. Is there any way to do this ?
The worse case scenario that i imagined involves copying all of the tar files and re-installing each manually, in order to avoid downloading them again. I hope i won't have to do this.

    You would have to do that anyway going from 5.12 to 5.16

      Oh, ok. I didn't know this. Ouch.
      Thank you for the information.

      I might try something even sillier than what i did before (well, things cannot get more broken than they are already, so...) :
      installing v5.12 again, now.
      Hopefully, things will work again and then i can get perlall (and maybe Pinto), and do things properly.

      How does it sound ?

        Sounds like work :) esp for windows ;)(even if you aren't solo I would use cava, maybe even with citrus) but it might work, I wish you luck, the matrix doesn't :(
