I haven't used perl in quite a while, but decided it would be useful for some mongo work I'm starting.
I have a 64-bit Windows 7 laptop, so I downloaded and installed the latest 64-bit perl from ActiveState. After, I installed the latest PDK (which I bought last year).
While I try to run the perl shell from within a cmd I get no prompts. I seem to recall getting ">" or something. As I'm inputting statements in the output of them isn't echoed. For instance, I can put in $a = 5; and then print $a; and nothing is generated.
Has anyone dealt with this problem with ActiveState? I don't recall this being an issue before.
