in reply to How to upgrade wxWidgets to 2.9.5 in the most painless and safe way?

Can I upgrade wxWidgets from 2.8.12 to 2.9.5 by simply upgrading Alien::wxWidgets? Can Alien::wxWidgets::Utility be used to upgrade wxWidgets from 2.8.12 to 2.9.5?

No and No. Alien-wxWidgets is used to install many different versions of wxWidgets, 2.8.12 with different build options (+/-unicode, ... )

Later you reinstall Wx and you build it against a specific Alien-wxWidgets configuration, like 2.9.5, and that is how you get Wx with a specific version

If you installed something else like Wx::Scintilla , that requires compilation like Wx, depends on Wx, you'll need to recompile/reinstall that too

You don't want to bother with this, its just busy work, install citursperl, or install from ppm (if you can)

Can the Citrus Perl installation/distribution manager utility, be used with Strawberry Perl/DWIM Perl?

Yes. Citrusperl is a zipfile, you unzip it, you run relocateperl or citrusutils, and thats it. Then you call citrusvars.bat to make it first perl in path, or citrusterm.bat to start a new cmd.exe window with citrusperl first in path, or just call perl.exe directly

start citrusutils and install the Wx 2.9.x Development Release Bundle, it will remove the 2.8.x install

when you're finished with your program read http://www.citrusperl.com/helpweb/createdistribution.htm

      Thank you, AM.

      Now (sorry if these are newbie questions) I am using cpanp. So first I go: -u  Alien::wxWidgets.

      Then: a. How do I tell cpanp to look first in http://www.wxperl.co.uk/repo29?

      b. That's a "PPM" repository. Can cpanp simply use it to download a new installation of Alien::wxWidgets?

      Many TIA - Helen

        Now (sorry if these are newbie questions)

        and here I thought you'd done some of these steps before ... you never give cpanp a ppm repository, cpanp doesn't speak ppm

    Thank you, AM

    Just to make it clear:

    start citrusutils and install the Wx 2.9.x Development Release Bundle, it will remove the 2.8.x install
    Can I use citrusutils to install the "Wx 2.9.x Development Release Bundle" with my current StrawberryPerl installation? or must I install a new complete CitrusPerl installation anyway?

    Many TIa - Helen

      install citrusperl to get citrusperl, it won't interfere with your other perls
