I know that Merlyn is into Carribean cruises
Perhaps you've missed that about one cruise in four goes up north, to Alaska. I've helicoptered onto a glacier, trouncing around in waist-high snow.

My home page also shows me taking second place at the US National Competition for GS Racing (in my category, of course), and until I started running out of both time and money, I was a 35-day-per-year snowboarder.

Yes, I like warm, but I also like cold too, when I'm prepared for it.

[thezip]: Is there an analogy for '&' (ie. run commandline process in background) for Windows commandline?
[Corion]: thezip: start "some title" path\to\that\ application, but that will open another console window
[Corion]: thezip: If you want to confuse your users, use system(1, "that\\command" );, which will make Perl launch it in the background
[Corion]: That will keep the console window open even though the user can't type into it anymore
[thezip]: So I have a script that generates a log file. After script completion, I want tohave VIM open this logfile.
[thezip]: i don't get the command line "back" until I close VIM. No what I want to happen...
