Strawberry Perl variants Jan 2017

#1 Post by KJD » Sat Feb 04, 2017 12:57 pm

Strawberry Perl is the Open Source Perl installer for Windows which allows you to run Perl on Microsoft’s premier platform while monitoring as close as possible a performance as you would expect in a UNIX environment.

Strawberry for "Perl on a stick" comes in two fresh flavours (I'm from near UK :wink:)
from http://strawberryperl.com/releases.html

Portable edition = suitable for "perl on USB stick" (you can move/rename the perl directory and it will still work)
32bit Strawberry Perl is compiled with USE_64_BIT_INT enabled but there exists a version without USE_64_BIT_INT
DOWNLOAD strawberry-perl-no64-5.24.1.1-32bit-portable.zip on http://strawberryperl.com/release-notes ... 32bit.html

PDL edition = portable edition + extra PDL maths related modules and external libraries

5.24.1.1 2017-01-16 32bit/64bit

older 5.22 version also updated
5.22.3.1 2017-01-15 32bit/64bit

check out delta difference between the two variants if its important to you at

The lack of screenshots makes me think this is command-line based

@Webfork

True Perl same as DOS underlying Windows was CLI

Many Perl apps can be GUI depending on the toolkit as an example see http://www.prima.eu.org/big-picture/

If you think the user-base is too miniscule freely delete this "portable freeware" thread

I think it's limited to a small audience but that's doesn't make it irrelevent. The only real issue here is that it's in the Submission forum, where we usually put programs that are under consideration for addition to the database.

I'll bump it over to Resources.

  • Good call. 8)

    @KJD: could you ammend the OP subject to something along the lines of "Strawberry Perl portable..." for better retrievability? Thanks in advance. :)
