berrybrew, the Perlbrew for Windows, updated to v1.13
I've released berrybrew version 1.13.
The most notable change is the addition of the
register command, which allows you to copy/move existing Strawberry Perl portable editions from your local/remote systems and have them operate as custom instances within
berrybrew. Before registering a new instance:
> berrybrew available The following Strawberry Perls are available: 5.26.0_64 5.26.0_64_PDL 5.26.0_32 5.24.1_64 [installed] * 5.24.1_64_PDL 5.24.1_32 5.22.3_64 5.22.3_64_PDL 5.22.3_32 5.20.3_64 5.20.3_64_PDL 5.20.3_32 5.18.4_64 5.18.4_32 5.16.3_64 5.16.3_32 5.14.4_64 5.14.4_32 5.12.3_32 5.10.1_32 5.8.9_32 * Currently using
Now, copy your new instance into the instance directory (by default
c:/berrybrew), then register it. I've used
new_instance as the example instance directory in this case:
> berrybrew register new_instance > berrybrew available The following Strawberry Perls are available: 5.26.0_64 5.26.0_64_PDL 5.26.0_32 5.24.1_64 [installed] * 5.24.1_64_PDL 5.24.1_32 5.22.3_64 5.22.3_64_PDL 5.22.3_32 5.20.3_64 5.20.3_64_PDL 5.20.3_32 5.18.4_64 5.18.4_32 5.16.3_64 5.16.3_32 5.14.4_64 5.14.4_32 5.12.3_32 5.10.1_32 5.8.9_32 new_instance [custom] [installed] * Currently using
That instance can now be used under
Other notable changes:
- pryrt/PETERCJ sent in a very large pull request that did a sweeping overhaul on the unit test framework which makes it much more flexible and reliable (thanks!)
- added new exception handling for certain edge cases
- documentation updates
- closing of several minor issues

Because I took over maintanership, I will be updating dnmfarrell's berrybrew repo in the coming days to bring it up to speed.
