Can I use PPM with Strawberry Perl?

I have been programming computers since 1967, hence the name PapaGeek. I am well versed in visual studio C++ and C#, but I am a relative Perl newbie.

I am working with Strawberry Perl, Eclipse, and Epic on Windows 7. The PPM package with Strawberry Perl, to be as polite as possible, sucks!

Can I run the Active State PPM process with my Strawberry Perl? If so, what are the steps that I need to follow to properly install it? Again, you are talking to a newbie, so write the answer like a chapter in “Perl for Dummies”.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Reinstalling 5.16/64-bit

I am among the folks who have seriously broken/missing documentation. My *perl* [and all the packages I've used so far, which isn't all that many of 'em] runs perfectly. But the documentation is decimated [as with everyone else, even the core-components section is missing]. The only "solution" I've seen is a vague-feeling comment that something must have gone wrong with the installation [even though *some* docs are installed, and the actual program is installed], and the fix is to reinstall. such is life...

Encoding in the debugger window

Inconsistent TCL remote debug connection

I've used TCL remote debug just a bit, and up until now have not had problems establishing the connection between the remote machine and the local debugger. Can anyone provide guidance on gaining more visibility into the connection process so I can see where it is breaking down. Here's my present situation.

Komodo Version:
Komodo IDE, version 8.5.3, build 83298, platform win32-x86.
Built on Mon Nov 18 17:03:19 2013.

dbgp_tcldebug --version
Tcl DBGp Build 296864 (no-license)

Not sure why that says no-license. It was copied from a licensed install of Komodo.

Proxy Support on Remote File open?

I'd love to be able to use the Remote File feature at work, but my company uses a proxy and I can't find settings for that anywhere in the preferences.

Am I looking in the wrong place or does Komodo not do that?

Preferences Search Box: circling found keywords in Prefs

The feature to search the Prefs menu is great.
Wanted to share a picture of an implementation that goes even further: when you search for a keyword in Prefs, all the areas that contain the keyword are automatically circled in red.
Makes it even faster to find the option.

A feature suggestion for Komodo as it is already most of the way there.

Key Binding for Tools / Add-Ons

In Komodo, is it possible to create a keyboard shortcut to open the Add-Ons page?

In Thunderbird and Firefox, it is possible through KeyConfig.


Incompatible themes - is there any way to make them run?

Hello, it's my first post there, I hope that I have chosen the right subforum.

I'm pretty new to Komodo. I have updated it to 8.5 and then I tried extensions for the first time. Extensions database is very impressive, I found few functionalities that I was dreaming of, but some of them are incompatible with Komodo 8.5 (e.g. ColorTab, MySQL Database Explorer or Aero Theme). Is there any wayaround to make them work with 8.5 version?

Sorry, if there is similar topic. I was looking for that information, but I hadn't found it.

PS. I use Windows 7.
