Re: Changing HOME for PERL
Hi Andrew,Well this is bad. Again, I'm not sure what C:\PERL\BIN\perl is but I
suspect it's ActiveState's Perl (Yuck!) and the above indicates that
Cygwin's /usr/bin is not in your path before C:\PERL\BIN. This is not
good. What's your PATH look like?
It seems my Cygwin has attached itself to the PERL on my C drive and
not the cygwin Perl. How do I change that? Also debugger seemed to
$ which perl
$ which Perl
(Hmmm... the "perl" vs "Perl" thing... I guess things like ls and which
don't care about case but perhaps exec(1) does. I know that NTFS is case
insensitive but case preserving but Unix/Linux is supposed to be not
only case preserving but case sensitive too).
This just ran the ActiveState Perl, which also supports a debugger.
Given your PATH try "/usr/bin/perl -de 1".
$ perl -de 1
Loading DB routines from perl5db.pl version 1.28
Editor support available.
Enter h or `h h' for help, or `perldoc perldebug' for more help.
