perl56 - execute perlscript on ActivePerl 5.6 or Strawbery Perl 5.6 without %PATH% settings (poor App::perlbrew)
This software is useful when perl 5.6 and other version of perl are on the one computer. Do not set perl 5.6's bin directory to %PATH%.
It is necessary to install perl 5.6 in "\Perl56\bin" directory of the drive of either. This software is executed by perl 5.6, and find the perl 5.6 and execute it.
Find perl 5.6 order by, Z:\Perl56\bin\perl.exe Y:\Perl56\bin\perl.exe X:\Perl56\bin\perl.exe : : C:\Perl56\bin\perl.exe Z:\strawberry\Perl56\bin\perl.exe Y:\strawberry\Perl56\bin\perl.exe X:\strawberry\Perl56\bin\perl.exe : : C:\strawberry\Perl56\bin\perl.exe
When found it at last, set its path to environment variable PERL56BIN.
C:\> perl56 foo.pl [..execute foo.pl by perl 5.6..]
