I just recently downloaded Activeperl and am tryin to self-study perl, I am running windows98 and i dont have experience with DOS, how do i set it so that i dont have to type F:\perl\bin\perl.exe in the DOS shell to execute perl scripts and type perl only instead, the PATH should be set cause i choosen so durin the install of active perl and .pl files have the right association! :)

    If you're running ActiveState Perl, doesn't it take care of this for you? If you go to a dos window and type path, see if Perl is in your path already.

    If not:

    1. Using notepad, open c:\autoexex.bat.
    2. Once you have that open, look for a line with SET PATH in it. ( Mine looks like SET PATH=C:\Perl\bin\;%PATH%
    3. After the semicolon, if it doesn't exist, put in the path to your perl

That should do the trick.
