Hello pryrt and ++ my friend for this updated tutorial!

just some minor things from my part.. In the Strawberry Perl section I'd invert the paragraph position: first the plain simple way using cpan client, then the make method that I consider less frequently used and more hackish. Users used to windows rarely understand making things and also installing something in the command line is considered a dangerous journey.

Also some cpan frequently used interactive commands, in a pseudo session, as example can be a benefit for win32 users. For example:

cpan> # to install Some::Module just type: cpan> install Some::Module # to see if there are updates for a module use 'r' cpan> r DBI ... Package namespace installed latest in CPAN file DBI 1.637 1.643 TIMB/DBI-1.643.tar.gz # to upgrade some module to the latest version use 'upgrade' cpan> upgrade DBI

I dont know if it is worth to mention that Strawberry puts its own mirror as first one in the cpan configuration:

cpan> o conf urllist urllist 0 [] 1 []

..and for it I hit: LWP failed with code[500] message[Can't connect to]

Minor editing nitpick: it seems you are using the wikisyntax for the monastery: if so after the single quote you cannot have any char: 'cpan -i Some::Module'. does not work, you need good old tags if you want the dot: <c>cpan -i Some::Module.</c>


There are no rules, there are no thumbs..
Reinvent the wheel, then learn The Wheel; may be one day you reinvent one of THE WHEELS.

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.
