Padre Requires A CMD Window (WinXP)

In it's current form, Padre requires a CMD window to be open. If you close that CMD window it will close Padre, too. By changing a line in the padre.bat file to this:

start wperl -x -S %0 %*

I was able to make Windows not require a CMD window to be open.

*note* If you just run "wperl ..." and omit the "start" command, a CMD window still opens but you can manually close the CMD window without closing Padre. This is because Windows hasn't reached the end of the bat file yet.

My OS is WinXP Pro.

The best thing to do on "Almost Six" and "Padre" is to modify Padre's shortcut to the following:

C:\strawberry\perl\bin\wperl.exe C:\strawberry\perl\bin\padre

I will discuss it with Curtis Jewell (CSJewell) on how to include it in the next release.

Fixed in r8225

A small padre.exe launcher is now installed with Padre in c:\strawberry\perl\bin

Thanks for reporting the bug.
