    Hmm, sounds to me that git is not in the Windows Path variable. I use panda without problems on Windows and HTTP::UserAgent was installed without errors too. The same with Powershell and Panda.

    When I open a new command line and enter "WHERE git", Windows says me it is in C:\Program Files\Git\cmd\git.exe.

    So, I think you have rather a configuration than a panda problem.

    There are multiple reports of panda not working on Windows, this is hardly a unique experience to op. If you read his entire post you'll even see that he got past the 'git' issue, so what you're referring to has nothing to do with his problem.

    @ugexe
    I do not say that panda does not have problems on Windows.
    I do say that the error "'git' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file." is not a panda one.
    I read the entire post and the gist as well. And his walkaround was to use the Git shell not to put the git.exe in the PATH environment variable. If you use the GIT CMD shell it works as well.
    So, Panda has flaws but you cannot blame it for this git problem thing.

  • ugexe commented on Need Perl6 modules on Windows then use Zef

    You are assuming panda does not have the ability to change the environmental variables it spawns processes (like git itself). I know for a fact the way it handles environmental variables for spawned processes is bugged, because I've fixed it in Zef years ago.

    Hint: there are ramifications from switching to 'run' from 'shell' that require more than passing an array of command parts instead of a string
