Current Perl documentation can be found at perldoc.perl.org.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:

The $^O variable ($OSNAME if you use English) contains the operating system that your perl binary was built for.

[LanX]: I want the command line in the history
[tye]: -Mouse
[Corion]: Option a) would mean launching cmd.exe /k c:\path\to\ batchfile- launching-perl- script.cmd. Option b) would be to add pause as the last line of said batch file.
[LanX]: First day after holidays ... and already stressed by the fact that colleagues changed stuff without communication ... apparently I'm the only one trying to fight entropy
[Corion]: LanX: The command is always in the history if you typed it in before. If you didn't type the command into the command line, it will not be there. I think there is doskey which can stuff command lines into the history
LanX damns the cult of CB ;-)
LanX WTF WTF WTF
[LanX]: please forget my last 3 posts
[LanX]: Yeah option a doesn't go into history
[LanX]: probably I need to teach the app to restart after C-c Kill
