in reply to Getting a working Padre and Wx on Mac OS X (Snow Leopard) with Perl 5.14.0

Thanks for the helpful post. I dismissed Padre as being carelessly buggy when the first time I hit "File->Save As" it simply *poof* terminated without a trace. Your persistence seems to have paid off. I think I'll give it a try again now. I know that it has received a general thumbs-up for those who have it working.

Good choice on moving over to Perlbrew. I've grown to like it in a short period of time.

    hmm, I don't recall that bug being reported. Do you remember which version was that and on what operating system?

      If my recollection is correct, the "File Save As" crash happened when I attempted to use the system Wx supplied with Snow Leopard. On Snow Leopard,

      /usr/bin/wx-config --version

      gives

      2.8.8

      I think this happens with both perl 5.12 and 5.14. Also, I think this happened with the non-gtk versions of Wx that I tried (from fink). I went through many iterations of testing and combinations of perl and Wx in order to get this working so my recollection may not be entirely accurate.
