Re: Gtk3 on Windows

Correct. I guess you could play with paths etc to have 2 installations co-exist. To answer what you're implying ( or what I think you are ), yes it would be good to have *just* the gtk stuff that you could drop into an existing Strawberry Perl installation, but that would be difficult at this point. The installation process included removing quite a few pieces of Strawberry Perl and rebuilding them. I could use a diff tool to figure out what's changed from a 'base' installation and try to package things from there, but it's not clear what effect these rebuilt components would have on things other people might be using. Anyway, I'm open to suggests etc. I'm in the process of setting up a wiki detailing the build instructions. Then I'll submit patches to try to reduce the size of the wiki & complexity of the installation process. If there is enough interest, I guess 'we' can work on packaging just the gtk components. Let's see how many users there are. That's one good thing about hosting the download - I can see how many downloads there are ( unlike cpan for example ).

In other words, this would replace an existing Strawberry Perl install?
