in reply to exe for perl

As long as your extensions (.pl) are set to open with the perl executable, you can run a .pl file by clicking on it or a shortcut to it. If this is not set correctly, you can right click on a .pl file, select "Open With", then "Choose Program" to find the Perl executable.



Thanks,
GW

    and if you append .pl to the PATHEXT environment variable then you don't need to type the .pl extension.
    PATHEXT=.COM;.EXE;.BAT;.CMD;.VBS;.VBE;.JS;.JSE;.WSF;.WSH;.pl;
