in reply to Padre and Strawberry Perl problems
Recently I was able to get Padre minimally working on Linux (but not for Perl 6) by making patches to Padre and its dependency Term::ReadLine::Gnu. I started with patches from the Padre mailing list and other references, and I had to make a few more minor changes. I don't know if that will help on Windows, but I assume it is worth a try.
Update: Get the patched modules here.
