Where to find Windows users to try Padre, the Perl IDE?
As reported elsewhere the first super easy Padre installer for Windows was released last week.
It is now called the Almost Six package as it contains a development version of Rakudo Perl 6.
Almost six contains the following packages:
- Strawberry Perl 5.10 for Windows
- Rakudo Perl 6 release #19 ("Chicago")
- Padre version 0.41
- Padre::Plugin::Perl6 v0.55
It is very easy to download the msi package and then install it as you would install any other Windows application.
Then you can start writing either Perl 5 or Perl 6 code.
I was on YAPC::EU in the last 3 days but there almost everyone is using Linux or Mac OSX. So I wonder what do you people suggest? How can we attract Windows users who write Perl code to try Padre an give us feedback?
