in reply to Setting up Perl/CGI with Windows

Thank You, Finally I got CGI to work on my apache2 and active Perl, now I only need to get the .pl working! FYI I'm running Apache 2.0.50, PHP 4.3.8, Active Perl 5.8 on a WinXP Pro SP2 : )

    If I'm understanding correctly what you're asking, the solution is as follows: To map .PL to perl just like a .CGI file, in any Explorer window go to Tools -> Folder Options -> tab to File Types -> scroll to .PL. If it's not there, add a New one. Copy to that record the same settings from whatever you have .CGI mapped in that list, which basically consists of the path to your Perl Command Line Interpretor (usually c:\perl\bin\perl.exe).

[Corion]: Discipulus: Yes, but the chart gives some limits on whether it's really worth spending time for saving your time. If you gain enjoyment, automating is still great, but it doesn't save time ;)
[Discipulus]: Corion are you would able to realize such thing? O_O
[Corion]: In the same vein I have a script that automates Firefox to enter some data into another system. It's not faster than the people using the script if they were to do it manually, but they prefer not having to check the data and not having typos when ...
[Corion]: ... entering the data
[Corion]: Discipulus: I don't know whether I could really do that, but the init process itself mostly launches other processes, and the whole startup is just following a path of dependencies and making sure they are all running. Which basically is what ...
[Discipulus]: when at work my time is (temporarly) owned by the firm, so i do not care (coworkers whatch movies.. I code Perl)
[Corion]: ... make already does, except for files instead of programs. But maybe with some /proc hackery, that could be eliminated and one could use plain make :-D
[choroba]: systemd just makes is asynchronous
[choroba]: so, make -j
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah - but when writing Perl to save time (instead of having fun), it helps to look whether you're actually saving time ;) Why spend 5 minutes doing manually what you can spend three years automating? ;)
