in reply to Are you using Vanilla/Strawberry Perl? Tell me about it!

I found installing Strawberry Perl to be straightforward. I had a little bit of confusion as to where it had been installed initially. I haven't put SP through any heavy duty work but programs that I had built and run using ActiveState have worked fine for me. I wrote up this post using an early version of Grandfather's PM oriented editor running SP. BTW, my machine is available to run the CPAN Tester's installation mentioned over at Strawberry Perl CPAN Testers. Last I heard this was still a work in progress. Let me know if it is ready to go and I'd be happy to participate. IMO, it will be good to have an alternative to ActiveState for Windows use.

    This is great news. We're really looking for win32 testers. I am by no means the expert on how to set things up for CPAN smoking, though. Ideally, you should log on to irc.perl.org, join the #win32 channel and ask "chorny" (Alexandr Ciornii). He has contributed a huge amount of test results and corresponding RT tickets.

      Wrote first version of CPAN smoke tutorial. As it is wiki based, I will develop it further. Please ask questions there or by e-mail.
