I have on Windows ... so, where is it?

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

I have a local version of perl running on Windows 7 and CPAN assures me PAR is up to date.

So, where is the script which should be automagically invoked when I type "pp" at the command line?

As I don't have admin access to this PC, nothing has been added to my path, so I don't know where "pp" should be. Is it "pp.exe" or ""? Searches for both come up empty or rather, lots of false positives and nothing I can use.

    IIRC, for "pp" you need to install PAR::Packer.

Re: I have on Windows ... so, where is it? (cpan circular dependencies)

    $ mversion pp 0.992 $ perldoc -l pp C:\perl\site\lib\ $ which -a pp C:/perl/site/bin/pp C:/perl/site/bin/pp.BAT $ cpanm pp pp is up to date. (0.992)

    OTOH, I don't know why PAR doesn't make PAR::Packer a dependency -- so its circular dependency, all the cpan clients should know how to deal with this by now (not a new problem)

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
