I ran across the portableshell.bat file used by Portable Strawberry Perl in
the following StackOverflow question:

There are a number of problems with that script that lead to unnecessary

   - The root path of Portable Strawberry Perl cannot contain space, equal
   (=), semicolon (;),  ampersand (&), or caret (^)
   - The script will fail if the existing PATH contains an unquoted
   ampersand or caret

Plus there are other esoteric issues that could use improvement.

I've developed (and tested) a significantly improved portableshell.bat
script that I would like to contribute.

I joined GitHub, but have no idea how to proceed any further.
