I was using Padre and DWIM Perl, following Gabor Szabo's instructions at https://perlmaven.com/installing-perl-and-getting-started
I have just uninstalled DWIM Perl and installed Strawberry Perl 220.127.116.11 (64bit) for Windows into C:\Strawberry on my hard drive.
The README.txt file tells me to run the following commands to manually set some environment variables:
c:\myperl\relocation.pl.bat ... this is REQUIRED!
c:\myperl\update_env.pl.bat ... this is OPTIONAL
When I tried to run c:\Strawberry\relocation.pl.bat I got the error message "The system cannot find the path specified." Hovever, there was a file "relocation.txt" in C:\Strawberry which appeared to run successfully. I can't find any files similar to update_env.pl.bat however.
I liked the convenince of Padre, but don't want to run into more problems due to not being kept up to date. I also have Notepad++. What to you recommend?
Thanks for all your help. I'll probably have more questions later.
