in reply to
exec() on Windows
Thanks. It worked both as .pl and .exe (pp).

Strange that "start" with exec() does not work.
start is a "shell builtin" command and does not exist as an external program, which is why it does not work with exec.

Under my control; I watch alone

Under the control of whoever gets it first
One of many, and the TV has a mind of its own
