Had a weird symptom calling raku
Message ID:
Hi All,

Windows 10 Pro

raku -v
This is Rakudo version 2020.05.1 built on MoarVM version
2020.05 implementing Raku 6.d.

I had a weird symptom calling Raku from Cobian Backup.
A black box popped up, delayed about two seconds,
then died.  The only writing was the flashing cursor.

Running the program directly from a shell showed
that I had a directory in "lib" that did not
exist on the customer's machine:

use lib 'K:/NtUtil', 'C:/NtUtil', '.';

Edited out the missing directory and happy camping returned.

use lib 'C:/NtUtil', '.';

I thought for a moment that Raku could not be called
from Cobian.  Had one of those "ah poop" moments


'K:/NtUtil' is the network drive I program my various
Windows virtual machines from.   Since the shell I
use is in that directory, "." will suffice.
