Hi Joost,


I keep forgetting what system(1, @command) does. (it's windows specific, right?)
Is Windows specific, it is meant to give a non-blocking system call - it gets the result of the creation of the child process and returns it. I have also tried it without the 1, works as expected and gives the same error.

[stevieb]: I really dislike how perlbrew doesn't list your version of perl if a newer minor version bump has happened. eg: I use 5.24.1, but 5.24.2 is available, hiding my 5.24.1. I may look at this, as I made it display correctly in berrybrew in cases like this
[stevieb]: choroba just gleaned your post about Module::Starter. I use it too, pretty much for every dist I write
[LanX]: I remeber M::S (it was dialog driven?) to be buggy
[stevieb]: As far as Dist::Zilla goes, I don't like installing that other than on systems my test platorm runs on. I find it too heavy. I prefer being able to glean a Makefile.PL
