in reply to strawberry perl library path?

thanks guys, it seems that editing both and 's perl path will work.

here are the steps in point form in case others need it :
(below is based on assumption your shebang is #!/usr/bin/perl, and that you want to move perl to another location while retaining strawberry's compilers in strawberry folder)

1. Move bin, lib and site folder of strawberry/perl/ to c:/usr/
2. Edit usr/lib/ and change all reference of strawberry's perl to usr.

for example :

change to :

note : but for those that's not related to perl, don't change it unless u plan to move strawberry. Examples are :


3. Edit usr/lib/ as well.
*same as point 2.

4. Make sure the PATH environment is pointing to usr/bin.
you should then be able to use strawberry perl properly without errors.
