    For a normal ActiveState install you should be able to run your Perl application by simply typing the filename on the command line and pressing enter. If that doesn't do it for you then you could try:

    c:\perl\bin\perl.exe proj.pl

    which runs the Perl interpreter from the default location used by the ActiveState install.

    Welcome to the Monastery Ethen

    As GrandFather has already suggested
    "you should be able to run your Perl application by simply typing the filename on the command line"

    You may find it useful when first learning to create a shortcut to the copy cmd.exe into the Perl bin.

    Then all that is needed is to type the file name "proj.pl" at the command prompt.
