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 limitations:

  * 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.
