Path setting for Strawberry perl?

fireblood has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Dear all, I have just installed Strawberry Perl for the first time and it is working great. But my question is about the path setting. The documentation says that the user path must be updated to include the following directories: c:\myperl\perl\site\bin c:\myperl\perl\bin c:\myperl\c\bin However, the installation routine does not create a directory called c:\myperl\perl\site\bin. It does, however, create the other two, and it does create a directory called c:\myperl\perl\site\lib. Does anyone know, is there a typo in the documentation, such that c:\myperl\perl\site\lib is supposed to be added to the path and not c:\myperl\perl\site\bin? Anyone bin there, done that? Thanks!

    The documentation is correct. The path may not exist now but surely will when you start installing modules. I use Strawberry and I have the site/bin directory.
