in reply to modify searchlist in registry

Apart from the typo, it's because you missed out CurrentControlSet... the full "path" should be HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters.

P.S. The value is a hash so if you wanna look into it you'd be better with:

#!perl use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; use Win32::TieRegistry; my $key = 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\ +Parameters'; my $parameter = $Registry->{$key}; print Dumper($parameter);
Although that will give you _loads_ of info!
perl -le "s,,reverse killer,e,y,rifle,lycra,,print"

    thanks, that works just fine, i can now retrieve the search list with;
    my $key = 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\ +Parameters\SearchList'; my $search_list = $Registry->{$key};
    but how about changing the value?
      just assign value to $Regitry->{key};, and registry will be updated via internal "tie" magic.
