Subject: Re: powershell compatible SPP
But does that provide the functionality that's required ? ... or are
there some issues regarding the functionality thus obtained ?
The main one is without command.com, all the .bat files for running perl
scripts as programs (think pdl2 or perldl) won't run.
They run ok for me in the powershell - in so far as they start up fine and I
can run simple scripts on them. (Or do people want to be able to run cmdlets
in the pdl2 shell ?)
One thing I did notice is that the history (up/down arrow) keys don't work
in the perldl shell that's run in powershell, though those keys work when
the perldl shell is run in the cmd.exe shell.
When I switched to using pdl2, the history keys then became functional.
Anyway .... I think your main aim at this point was to gauge the level of
interest in your proposed project, and although I'm not prepared to commit
to the project, I do find it a bit interesting and would like to stay up to
date with developments.
Are there more detailed reports (that I can access) of the actual problems
being experienced ?
