in thread Installing Perl on a Windows PC

I know that it's supposed to be but it's not necessarily the same perl. I downloaded and installed it about a year (or year and a half) ago to see what all was different. My guess is that it doesn't set all of the necessary registry settings that the MSI sets. Once it was "installed", there were lots of things that didn't work; one of which was PPM. I know there were other pieces that didn't work either but the moment I can't recall. It's just been too long. This was on a Win98 machine so that might have had something to do with it too.

    *yawn* If the registry entries were not created, then you did not run Installer.bat, so you can't say you installed it. I speak from personal experience, it's the exact same perl, except its Installer.bat who creates the registry entries and copies the files ... i'm running ActivePerl 5.8.4 right now, that I installed from the .zip via Installer.bat

    MJD says "you can't just make shit up and expect the computer to know what you mean, retardo!"
    I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).

[Corion]: Yay. Traditional finance situation averted. Bonds can be quoted in amounts (1_000_000 EUR) or per unit (1 unit). And a traditional error is to trade 2_000_000 piece when you meant to trade 2_000_000 EUR.
[Corion]: (one of my scripts simply catches high amounts and I phone people making that trade, ideally before the payment is due)
[Corion]: The sad thing is that my script sits at the end of the pipeline and can only look at the payments due today or tomorrow basically, while there are many more systems further up in the pipeline
[GotToBTru]: better late than never, I guess
[Corion]: GotToBTru: Sure - there is a long and sad story of many frantic cleanups that led us to implement this notification ;)
