I try and avoid problems with filenames by always giving Perl scripts a

Sometimes on windows it is best to put things in a directory/path that

cannot really help and even them i am just geussing.

When you install Autodia there is a sub-directory called 'Autodia'
(beginning with a capital letter A). But there is also a file called
'autodia'. The directory and the file cause a name clash in Windoze.

Why not ask the AutoDia maintainer?  He tried to be helpful last time i
asked him.

I will do that, thanks for the hint.


I really dont recall any better way to do this than to just force yourself
to use Perl.  I dont write perl but I dont let that stop me from using it.
The Perl in AutoDia is readable enough.

Probably, but Perl is ~=&$%! #_*->//\\ ;)

At least try it or explain why you wont use it before looking for

I *will* use Perl if there is no other easier way. I just don't want to have
to many interpreter languages on my computer that I don't use otherwise *if
there is another way*. I have read in the documentation that I need a
certain Perl module. This Perl module needs another Perl module to work. The
whole installation procedure seemed not too easy for me, and I wasn't sure
if the program was even thought for Windows. Therefore I asked these
(I have installed WinCVS before, a similar story: In addition I should have
TCL, Python, and cvs.exe installed, but I use Python anyway.)

Not meant as a complain, OpenSource is wonderful.
