perl56 - execute perlscript on ActivePerl 5.8 or Strawbery Perl 5.8 without %PATH% settings (poor App::perlbrew)
This software is useful when perl5.6 and other version of perl are on the one computer. Do not set perl5.6's bin directory to %PATH%.
It is necessary to install perl5.6 in "\Perl56\bin" directory of the drive of either. This software is executed by perl5.6, and find the perl5.6 and execute it.
Find perl5.6 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 perl5.6..]
Please patches and report problems to author are welcome.
