in reply to Changing file Properties on Win32

You might need to use Win32::OLE to automate the application which created the file. I note in the Object Browser for MS Word, for example, that you can access the DocumentProperties collection (such as "Comments", "Category", or "Keywords") via VBA, and what you can access via VBA you can access using Perl and Win32::OLE. See the responses to Win32:: OLE MS Word Table for links to great sources of information on translating VBA and learning more about Object Models.
