I've discovered that Strawberry Perl 5.10.0 and the binary package of SVK for Windows don't always play well together.

The binary was built with (and bundles) Strawberry Perl 5.8.8 Alpha 2. After installing the new Strawbery Perl 5.10.0, I found I had weird situations where running "perl" on the command line would run the SVK perl executable instead of the Strawberry Perl one. (Some form of command location caching, I assume -- the last location of perl.exe, perhaps?).

For me, the answer was renaming the perl.exe in C:\Program Files\SVK\bin to svkperl.exe and changing references to perl.exe in c:\Program Files\SVK\svk.bat to match. I also deleted the PATH manipulation in svk.bat.

I hope this helps anyone else using these tools on Windows save a few minutes of confusion and frustration.

(Sorry, I can't help with the many hours of confusion and frustration caused by Windows itself.)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
