Hi Luigi, Glad you managed to work out a solution. It seems to me that you've struck a rather strange issue that the Strawberry Perl developers might be able to deal with - or at least should be made aware of.
If you would like to have it followed up, I think the best thing would be to create a New Issue at https://github.com/StrawberryPerl/Perl-Dist-Strawberry/issues Cheers, Rob On Sat, Jun 6, 2020 at 12:52 AM Luigi Iotti <lu...@iotti.biz> wrote: > Hi sisyphus, > > > > Thank you for your answer.
