Hi Cow1337killr,

Disclaimer: Current berrybrew maintainer here.

"Where do I go on the Internet to download the file?"

Per the Installation portion of the documentation, you get it from here (this is the master cut... it'll always be up-to-date). You then want to compare that fetch against the SHA-1 sum that is posted next to the download link in the Installation section I mentioned above.

When you download the archive (zip) file, you want to extract it to anywhere on your system, except for C:\berrybrew. We hijack that directory for internal purposes (in the future, this won't be forced. In fact, it can be changed... see here). After you've extracted the file, change into that directory, and then initialize berrybrew:

cd berrybrew bin\berrybrew.exe config

You need to close your cmd window here, as Windows doesn't update its environment variables live-time in the way it is needed here. Then, open a new one.


berrybrew install 5.24.1_64 berrybrew switch 5.24.1_64

Kill current cmd window, open a new one, and:

perl -v

Now you can confirm you're operating on the proper version you selected, and you can go ahead and create stuff, and when executed, it'll run on the proper Perl installation.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
