Re: windows environment variable regression
in thread windows environment variable regression
Yes, in *NIX land. However, I should be able to write to the registry and have subsequent shells pick up my changes. And it ALMOST works. If I write directly to the PATH, no issues. If I write the PERL_PATH variable and stick it into the PATH, then subsequent shells do NOT expand PERL_PATH in PATH. If, however, all I do is fire up the Environment Variable dialog, see that all my changes are there and then click OK (no editing, no updates), the NEXT command box has the expansion properly done. That leads me to believe that there's some other 'bit' that has to be flipped. I'll have to test by looking at the registry directly which I cannot do on the current box. More to follow.
