in reply to Using ActivePerl and Strawberry simultaneously

Can I install the portable version of Strawberry and test it out while continuing to use the ActivePerl version for production work?

Yes. The only shell that will have Strawberry Perl in its path is the one that you start by executing Strawberry's portableshell.bat.

    ..and when you feel good with the new Strawberry Perl installation you can a) uninstall the activeperl or b) just clear PATH removing the activeperl entries and (permanently) adding the strawberry ones.

    Other relevant entries (from straberry's portableshell.bat) are also recommended

    set TERM=dumb set PERL_JSON_BACKEND=JSON::XS set PERL_YAML_BACKEND=YAML rem avoid collisions with other perl stuff on your system set PERL5LIB= set PERL5OPT= set PERL_MM_OPT= set PERL_MB_OPT=

    I'm also used to remove the file type association (check it with assoc .pl ).
