I've done that as well, but if you keep reuse the same shell for a while, switching backwards and forwards, you can run reach the limit of what the shell will allow. And if you compile perl yourself, the paths can be quite long with the default options. I've set up a couple of batch files to call whatever perl I want:

:: perl580.bat @echo off d:\dev\perl\5.8.0\bin\MSWin32-x86-multi-thread\perl5.8.0 %*
> perl561 # runs perl5.6.1 > perl580 # runs perl5.8.0

I have similar batch files set up for perldoc et al.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
