We've been asked to "standardize" our strawberry perl path (make it the same as activestate, "c:\perl64\perl.exe"
). The ugly part of this is that moving the contents of c:\strawberry\ one directory higher results in c:\win32 c:\cpan c:\licences
and other undesirables.
One option would to simple copy perl.exe to c:\perl64\ as well as leaving it in the normal strawberry directory. A concern is that we will break any scripts using $^X to find prove, wperl.exe or anything else out of the bin directory. Who does this anyway? Does anyone have any other ideas what might go bang if we do this?
We're also weighing up other options: recompiling perl, using a junction, and copying everything from the bin directory
